Hi,
I don't know whether there is some inbuilt feature with Mandrake for filesharing but definitely you can do it by configureing NFS.
configuring NFS

oh!!! you didnt' specified that you like to share file among linux machines or among 1 linux and 1 windows machine ???
anyways the above one is for linux->linux machine. For file sharing between windows and linux machine you will have to configure "samba"

regards

check the limewire site? or bittorrent site?

for limewire there is an .rpm file you can download at the site, which will be installed very easy on your RPM-based system.

for bittorrent there are many clients, with azureus probably being the most popular. theres a linux download from their official site, but its a source file. if you cant find an rpm for it then youll have to resort to the source file and compile the software yourself. it isnt hard just isnt as smooth as RPM or other binary installation files. just download the archive, read the INSTALL/README files and follow the isntructions.

for both of these programs ive mentioned youll need Jave runtime environment installed.

from the java site? please use search engines and search for this before giving up and just asking questions

go here to get to the downloads page. click 'Download JRE 5.0 Update 7'. accept the lisence agreement and click a file to download under 'Linux Platform - J2SE(TM) Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 7' heading.

instructions are here. if you download the rpm file, look at the rpm installation instructions; bin file look at self-extracting installation file.

download whatever one you like, .bin or .rpm.bin file.
