I need one that works on RedHat/Mandrake. Please don't tell me to use WINE, I can't get it to load KaZaa.

Try a search for "kazaa" and "linux" using the search button at the top of the page. It's been asked a lot and there are many options.

I recommend DC++ or Direct Connect for linux. Direct Connect is hands down the best peer-to-peer network around.

There's a DC++ version native to Linux??? Their (outdated) website says there isn't.

However, DC++ for Windows works under WINE, the only program I've tried that does.

well i also recommend DC also, cause it beats any peer to peer client hands down ...
and no there is no DC++, in linux it is called DCGUI-QT and its actually better than any DC client built for windows, and no i am not just saying that cause i am a linux user ...
anyways, i am not sure why people put up a fuss about kazaa, cause there is so many things out there that are better or equivalent...
just go to and browse the software map for clients and you'll notice that there are hundreds of them, even has a list of clients for as you will see there is many, many alternatives, so stop pulling your hair out and think you can only use kazaa, or that kazaa is the best, or whatever it may be ... there is even clients you can get that use the kazaa network, if for some reason you really can't pull yourself away from kazaa...

DC++ is a POS. It's designed for Windows users ( no node accepts the linux version ) and people with illimited bandwith a month and 250 GB Hard drives.
