a bit torrent client is not like kazaa or the alike. I would probably say that if you don't stop asking questions on how to get programs, the admins aren't going to be happy.

they have llegal as well as illegal uses...discussing the software is not out of line
..requesting were to get warez, or sites for downloads is not part of this forum
and any post pointing to such sites or to illegal software will most likely be deleted...
Azureus is a java bit torrent client for linux

I use Azureus too, the best IMHO. A good search is suprnova.org, it really helped me out finding all the linux distros when I was working my way thru them! The easiest thing to do with the .torrent files (which are the files a bittorrent search engine would point to) is to set your browser to automatically open with Azureus (wherever you placed it on your system). Then it will simply load the .torrent into azureus, ask you where you want to save the linux distro (or whatever you're downloading) and bingo! It's off! Simple as that :)

Si, Senor :)

When Firefox asks you what you want to do with the file (open or save) choose open and browse for the azureus startup script (wherever you put it when you installed azureus, mine's in /usr/local/azureus/azureus). Then check the "always do this" box and hey presto! ;)
