Bittorrent and mdk 9.2

I have just installed mdk 9.2 on my system. No problems with the install, works great. My question is...

I understand that bittorrent comes already installed on 9.2. does this include the download version. If so, where can I find it. I am itching to try it out, as it has only worked on windows for me so far.

If it is not included in 9.2, could someone please tell me how to install it, as when I tried in 9.1, I couldn't get it to run at all.

I'm not running Linux right now, but the way I got it to work on Red Hat 9.0 is to download the .torrent file and then run btdownloadcurses (I think that's the name of the command) on that file.

Basically, form the command line, type btd, TAB, <pick one of the commands>, space, filename you want to download.

Thanks for the info. The problem that I was having was that I couldn't find btdownload*.py on my system, but I installed it, and it works great. On window's the best download speed I could get was 70-80 Kb/s. I realize that this is also dependant upon other users, but on linux, I saw my first file download at 160Kb/s.

I know now that I will be using linux for more things, and windows for less.
