installing with YaST2 (suse 9.2)


so
i have no idea how to do just about anything in linux

miraculously, i've got all my hardware to be recognized though. Suse works just fine.

but now i want to start installing programs and whatnot. i think i got firefox to work for a full day... before i went and moved stuff around and then it stopped working...
but that's not my question

my question is, i downloaded a bittorrent.rpm (BitTorrent-4.0.2-1.noarch.rpm) and tried to install it with YaST2. i found it under the "installation summary" tab in the installation section (the thing that automatically opened when i clicked the "install with YaST2" button). it had a little "protected" icon next to it. i clicked "accept" and nothing happend. at least as far as i can tell. i cant open torrent files, i have no idea where it installed too (if it installed anywhere....) and i am completly stumped.

any help would be greatly appreciated

"i have no idea where it installed too (if it installed anywhere....) and i am completly stumped."

To find out if it installed use the rpm command.
rpm -qi BitTorrent | less

If it installed then you can find out where it was installed with:

rpm -ql BitTorrent | less

If YaST2 in fact did not install BitTorrent then su to root and try installing BitTorrent with rpm.

rpm -i /pathname/BitTorrent-4.0.2-1.noarch.rpm

Code:
man rpm
And you could always try this link for a start.

when i try to open up a torrent it asks me what program i want to open it with, and i have no idea how to use this information to open a torrent and download a file.

i suppose then i'll need to figure out an efficient way to organize files.
