linux is great for p2p try jam band shows)

irate=(downloadeder radio combo)

mldonkey=(connects to many different p2p networks)

giFTd+giFT fasttrack plugin+giFTcurs=this is a good fastttrack(kazza)client

limewire = (excellent and easy to set up)

freenet= (slow but private)

check out for help using newsgroups and xchat to download files(just another option)

make sure that u have java installed i am using (sun java's jre1.4.1) must have this for many of the apps above to work

i never could get kazza to work with wine but am having limited success with filtopia+winex
sorry i dont have links to the apps but you should be able to find them here
