Just use Limewire (p2p with gnutella) for Linux. 2 minutes reading and you'll have it installed.

run Apollon, that does the job. i think it connects to fastrack, or whatever it's called, that Kazaa uses.

Get CodeWavers. It runs off Linux, and you can install a LOT of Windows perograms on Linux and run them under emulation with CodeWavers. Sorry, forgot the link right now, just Google for Codewavers
