music search software

1- since AGSatellite is gone for good ( just when i start to enjoy it under linux) are there any other good, free, and fast music search for linux (i heard about limeware and kazaa (didn`t find linux kazaa tough)and giFT ) .
2- i`m curious about something : is it necessary to have the same musicsearch program in order to share mp3 ?
3- i have a friend with cable internet that lives right next door : well i heard that you could have a faster file sharing if two computers are nearby how can i do that ?

thanks a lot for any hints

1 - From what I've read on the forums, gtk-gnutella comes highly recommended for file sharing. You can do a search on for "gnutella" and you'll get a good number of clients.

2 - I believe you can have different clients if you're using the gnutella network.

3 - If you are friends and live next door from one another, why not set up ftp access for one another on each others machine and ftp the files? For the sake of security, just don't set up anonymous ftp access.
