Cool P2P for Linux?

I was just wondering if there was a P2P program like Kaza Lite, IMesh, or something. I would like to use a P2P program on my RedHat9 machine. Thanks Guys!

There's Overnet as well,which you can download a few front ends for, I find this pretty good, although I have also used Linewire and that was Good as well.

I'm no guru and I got GTK-Gnutella up and running pretty smoothly. I mostly download music and GTK gets about as many search results as Kazaa. Be warned that the XMMS player bundled with RH9 doesn't support mp3's so you'll have to fiddle with it a bit. Don't know how much of this you already knew...

Better yet, try 'giFT', reads on the Fasttrack(Kazaa) and gnutella(limewire) networks(along with others), try it.
