Torrent

I use bittorrent-gui for torrents in FC6. I also tried azureus but because of performance I didnt like azureus. However azureus has a good feature that you can select individual file before starting download.

Here is good torrent search sites that I use,
www.mininova.org
www.torrentspy.com
