    (Hope this isn't against rules...)

    mlDonkey. It's pretty good for most things, runs over about 6 different P2P networks.

    nothing wrong with p2p in itself, but we just don't need to be supporting people who as "how do i download a full copy of photoshop 8.0 on p2p" or whatever.

    Best you learn to install it, it follows a pretty standard method for Linux software. You can have two choices:

    a) RPM's are available, in which case you just download it, open it with gnorpm or kpackage or rpm -i and it installs

    b) Download source, tar -zxvf to decompress, ./configure, make, make install, done.

    for redhat, download the apt-rpm program. trust me it makes things a lot easier. it lets you install things very easily.

    i can install RPM's easily, most of the time. sometimes i get dependencies errors, and then i don't know what to do.

    Just download the source, it really is the easiest way to install most programs on Linux at this point in time. If you need help with that, post up here or get me or any of the Linux guys on here on AIM and get help :bigthumb:
