Unhappy BitTorrent Help?

So I'm trying to use the xd2-redhat.torrent because I my download stops at 84% everytime I try and use the Ximian installer file
Its happened like 8 times in the last 2 days (i'm on a T3 ).

So I download the BitTorrent RPM, install it ... can't figure out how to use it. Where are the binaries? How do I run it?

Scratch that, I go download the tar ball. Un tar it (xfmz), get a couple errors, and a directory full of these python scripts.

Sooo...i go download the wxPython RPM's, and install that. The linux install just talks about associating .torrent in the MIME types so it'll launch it when you try and download a torrent file with your webbrowser.

I've already downloaded the torrent file, how can I "use it" ?

Any help would be appreciated. I'm dying to try out xd2

nevermind - figured it out.

for anyone wondering, you need to edit your /etc/mailcap and setup the mime type so it'll launch the download python script. you can find the details in the INSTALL.linux.txt file.
