Newbie ! I can't install any torrent client in Ubuntu (Linux)!

HI ! I am totally new to Linux ! I had my first "contact" with Ubuntu 2 days ago ! I have a pc with Ubuntu installed on it and i want to install a torrent client on it, but because i am new with Linux, i don't know what to do ! PLS help me...I would appreciate if someone gave me a link with a good torrent client for me to download and a very detailed text with how to install the program ! Pls be include many details, since i am not at all familiar with Linux !

I know i ask for too much, but hopefully someone will help me !
THX in advance !

sudo apt-get install ktorrent
will get you a start. Replace ktorrent with the Gnome torrent program name to get that one, if you like. But issuing the command above will give you a torrent program that I've used to download Linux iso files, and it did work.
