We have a number of p2p programs on Linux - Azureus and Limewire are very popular. I'd suggest going to Sourceforge and Freshmeat and searching there.

Do you use emule on Windows right??? You can use on Linux too (lmule). In my machine I use gtk-gnutella it's very good, type "p2p on Linux" on Google and be happy!!!
