As far as I know Bit torrent is not on apt-get. Could you give me a rough guide on where to get it from and how to install it. Also have any of you used Apollon? I have a complete distro of it with an install script but I get errors even if im in superuser mode.

The specific instructions were for RedHat 9 with apt installed... but obviously the steps would be the same for most distros.

How you obtain Python, if required, would be with the distro specific tool:

emerge -UD python (gentoo)

urpmi python (mandrake)

apt-get python (debian)

Also, for non RPM distros, you would download the wxPython from this page and install per the instructions depending on your OS.
The reason that I recommend this client is that it has a slider to control the Upload bandwidth (you want to set it to a max of 80% of you upload capacity when sharing files ... any more than that and you could saturate the line, causing your download speed and all internet connectivity, to be extremely slow).

This client also tells you how many other seeds (full downloads) and peers (other people downloading) are connected to this file .... something I used to have to use the package torrentsniff for.
