    I would say that Limewire is probably going to give you what you're looking for (there are a host of others, though).

    Go to www.limewire.com and download it. I believe they even have an rpm installer. It does require a working java install, though.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I think LimeWire is available for Linux which runs the GNUTella network. It runs superfast under Winblows but dunno 'bout Linux coz I have a Winmodem.

    I use LimeWire myself, and the install is easy, as there is an RPM (LimeWireLinux.rpm).

    And if you don't already have Java, you can get it at:

    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

    You'll be wanting the JRE assumably (unless you program Java), so just download the rpm.bin file. In the terminal, type "sh [FILENAME HERE]", and then you'll have the regular RPM.

    I'm currently using nicotine, which is a soul-seek clone
    If all you want to do is download music, then nicotine is fantastic.
    I use mepis and got it by doing apt-get , however, it might be different with different distros.
