    Check out aMule and/or gtk-gnutella. You will find both at freshmeat.net.

    Good luck

    1) Open up a console
    2) su to root
    3) type "apt-get install xmule" with out the ".
    4) once it is installed, you can use it from the internet, other menu in kde.

    I think the actual using of it is about the same as kaaza, but I haven't used that for like a year.

    Hope this helps
