There is a program called Transmission that can help you handle torrents. It should be available in the repositories directly. If bittorrent is not needed for any special reason, try transmission first.

If it is not installed by default, you can install it by

 yum install transmission-gtk

Thank you for your quick answer!

the transmission installation is complete but I don't know how to configure it properly, I've read that there is a transmission-daemon running unfortunately I cannot find it.
This is what I've got:
[root@localhost transmission]# ls
[root@localhost transmission]# cd web/
[root@localhost web]# ls
images index.html javascript LICENSE stylesheets
[root@localhost javascript]# ls
common.js formatter.js menu.js transmission.js
dialog.js jquery torrent.js transmission.remote.js

how can I get transmission up and running??

By pointing your browser at a page that provides them. There are many sites that provide manget links including that old favourite, TPB.
