    Here is how to download a Debian ISO Image using bittorrent in linux
    http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-command-line-bittorrent-client.html

    As far as downloading anything that is copyrighted, that is illegal. There are quite a few games out now based on the quake engine (Open Source/GNU License) that are pretty huge, and so are distributed by torrents, I never heard of the one you are referring to though.

    For windows, try uTorrent to get an image from debian.org A Real OS helps a lot. :)

    Apparently this is not trading in copyrighted material.

    I'm sorry to cause illegal talk in the forum. I just was curious. But I figured it out anyways and it gave me tons of viruses. So ya... im pretty much done with the torrents now ( I used Bitorrent). But thanks for the help guys, you all are really helpful.

    Be sure to delete the microtorrent agent from you computer, or you stay a part of a kind of botnet.

    I did delete it but its still in my files. I deleted it out of my files, uninstall programs, etc. and it still remains there but, it wont open so I figured I should be okay.
