Brand new to Linux looking for a some quick advice!
I have an old Pentium III 800mhz computer with 512mb RAM that I would like to convert into a linux box for the sole purpose of downloading torrents to a NAS, no other uses need apply. Should be able to run uTorrent with an active webUI (If I can get that running I may not even attach a monitor to this computer and just leave it on all the time) and something like TED. What would you think is the leanest and most stable distro to choose for a task like this?

Hello and welcome to the forums!
You might want to take a look at Arch, Crux, Debian, or Gentoo. They each allow for a quick and minimal base system install, then you can install only what you want or need on top of that. Arch and Debian are probably the easiest of the four for new Linux users if you should want to try one of them first.
Good luck with your install.oz

utorrent is a windows application, it will not natively run on linux
you should use a native linux application instead such as transmission (has a web UI) among others
