Question Linux Apps that connect to Kazaa network

Are there any native Linux apps that connect to the Kazaa network, and which can download from more than one user at a time and join the pieces together afterwards (like Kazaa does). I'm asking because I simply cannot get Kazaa or Kazaa lite to run under wine (despite Warcraft 3 and the Doom 3 leaked Alpha actually do work).

I googled and found something called mldonkey which I cannot get to connect to anything. So what other native linux programs are there that connect the the Kazaa network?

Try LimeWire. It needs Java, so you may run into some problems there. But other than that, runs fine!

There's gift. It's a daemon. Then you get a front end for it like giftcurs. Runs like a dream. Uses the OpenFT and Gnutella networks. Also, a third-party fasttrack plugin is available (which I've installed and use) and you just can't really beat it.
