Setting Azueus as my default torrent program?

Hello Everyone, First off I am new to Linux...I played around with Feisty but with no wireless support I just couldnt let go of Windows, I just installed Gutsy and am now free . Everything seems to working fine...great actually! I am however running into a bit of a snag, I downloaded Azureus and want to use it as my default torrent application. Everything kept defaulting to the bit torrent downloader, I was poking around and think I hosed things up. Now when I try to download a torrent I get an error that says "could not be opened because the associated helper application does not exist, change the association in your preferences." Please remember that I am new to this OS, so some dumbed down instruction would be most helpful. Thanks!

Ok, so after a bit of digging around I see that there may be some compatibility issues with Azureus and Gutsy, so if you can even tell me how to re-associate bit torrent with my torrent files, that will be helpful to.
