Please use this thread or post a new thread.

Anyway, for your question, you have to boot from the RH cd and choose the right hdd to install it.

Wine. What you are looking for is Wine. Take a look at http://www.winehq.com. It's a windows application compatibility layer.

Extract from www.winehq.com:
Think of Wine as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris.

Anyway...

While you *can* use kTorrent in Linux, it's not as good. It's not as feature-rich as Azureus and uTorrent. For more info, take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_client

Yeah, sure Azureus works fine in Linux. However, like all Java applications, Azureus is bloatware, or almost there anyway. Azureus may be the most feature rich Bittorrent client I've ever come across, but it cannot beat uTorrent at low memory and CPU footprint. When you want to do many things at the same time with limited resources on your computer, you tend to want applications which can accomplish the same thing while eating less resources.

Right-click your Dekstop Computer and select New > Shortcut from the drop down menu...

Type in the console command which you are using to fire up the azureus...

Since you're not sure of the version, I think it's best that you go grab a copy of Ubuntu 7.10 tomorrow and try again.

I use Ubuntu 7.04 and Debian Etch (still newbie) and the installation did not require any special codes. Anyway, you are guided through the installation.

If you just want to have an idea of what it's like, you can always download a LiveCD e.g. Ubuntu. You can run it off the CD and will not mess any current installation you have. If you are really adventurous, then you can always dual-boot or even tri-boot!

If you have problems after installation, Uncle Google is always there to help you.

Ubuntu - http://www.ubuntu.com/
Debian - http://www.debian.org/
