Does Linux have a napster clone or something like gnucleus for file sharing?

read all the documentation on the website you found that tarball. there will (or bloody well should be) instructions on how to compile it.

also read the install instructions and those were a bit different...

if one of yu could explain each line for me id appreciate it...

gzip -dc gnapster-1.5.0.tar.gz | tar -x &&
im assuming this is a sort of file extractor...

cd gnapster-1.5.0 &&

./configure --prefix=/usr/whateverdiryouwant &&

make &&
make install

the configure script which you run by typing
./configure
is trying to guess what compiler the program will use on your system and what libraries are available, etc. it is sort of pre-install
then you run make
what it does is building rules for compilation and in most cases compiles various sources you downloaded in the archive, and finally make install
installs the compiled source on your system. Read manual pages on make for further details

I just installed the gnapster and do a search on the servers and can't seem to get connected to any servers. Is there something else that needs to be done?

i would get limewire. It is difficult to install though and requires that you have the Java Runtime Environment. Search for posts on it if you need help. THere is a lot available here about it.

I thing the one you have has a server file you have to configure.
It has some default one that don't work, otr are dummies or something. Searching this site with a couple keywords will get you everywhere with these fine tuning issues. Like th jave /limewire thing. Cant say enough about how much that has helped me.
