After your download (either via FTP or BitTorrent), use MD5SUM to verify that they're complete and not tampered with:
Fedora Core 1 MD5SUM

Hi Thoreau,

Follow the instructions at this page to download Bittorrent for FC1 and use it:

Yes, any .torrent file can be fed into the command you posted above (with different url and filename of course) and Bittorrent will do the rest.
For example this is how you would get FC1:
Code:
btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 350 \
--url http://torrent.dulug.duke.edu/yarrow...86-iso.torrent

I use Azureus, great BT client. Also I have set mozilla to not save .torrent files but instead to open them with Azureus. This way I click on a torrent link and it will start it all for me automatically.

Ctorrent is great. Small and efficent. In fact it is only one binary after compilation and it is stable. Original client (one writen in Python) used to crash awfuly on my system after few hours. This one works like charm. Sshot:

Until I installed azureus, the BitTorrent world was alien to me... Now I love everyminute of it! However i always get NAT errors when trying to set up my router to accept connections from the outbound connection through port 6881+... I don't know how to correct this, I don't want to appears as a greedy BT user
