    What problems are you having in the installation, exactly? Error messages? Can't figure out what to do with the files? More details would be helpful.

    first i did this:

    install Python, version 2.2.1 or later - http://python.org/

    install wxPython - http://wxpython.org/

    then i did this:

    untar and put a line in /etc/mailcap which is similar to the
    following, only replace the path to
    /usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py with the one it's actually in.

    application/x-bittorrent; /usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

    when i click on a .torrent file, it asks whether i should save it or run it from the site. I saved it and tried to run the torrent from a location on the computer, but it didnt work.

    ok, try just dling the RPM or the source for bittorrent http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/download.html
    site, see what you can do with that, or you can use the source from the site.
    Are you sure that you attempted to execute the torrent program correctly? look at the docs to make sure you did.
