Smile Redhat,Fedora download using Torrent

Greetings. I tried the Torrent download option for the latest fedora release on their site. It was really amazing. Rather than hours it took seconds.

My problem is I now have 3 files in my home file that I don't know what to do with. They are, Bit Torrent-5.0.5.exe. Zod-binery-x86 64.torrent, and Zod-dvd-x86 64.torrent.

Tried using the onsite help Faq's etc. but none seem to relate to the Torrent installation after down load.

Thank's for any assistance. Really confused old man.

One, is a BitTorrent client for Windows.....the other (Zod-binery-x86 64.torrent) is a torrent file (Used to start a torrent download)...and the last is the Fedora Core 6 DVD image.

1. Install a bittorrent client.
2. Open a port on your router and linux firewall to allow other people to connect to you while you are downloading it. Look here for more help.
3. Open up the 'Zod-dvd-x86 64.torrent' file in the bittorrent program.
4. In 4-96 hours (depending on internet speed) the iso will have downloaded.
5. Open k3b (or favourite burning program), click on 'burn dvd image' and select the iso, put a blank dvd in the drive, hit burn (and make sure you burn at nothing above 4x), and go make cup of tea, drink tea, come back.
6. Reboot machine, make sure boot from cd/dvd is enabled in bios.
7. Install fedora 6.

or for windows users.

1. Get a bittorrent program, like the one you have, the .exe file.
2. Install it.
3. Continue from part 2 of the linux howto. But use Nero or Easy CD to burn the iso.
