Please, could you be more specific?

If you want bittorrent you can use opera or the other dedicated bittorrent clients on the repos. I hope you'll find the .torrent files by yourself.

Ah! Someone told me that besides songs, you can even find movies in bittorrent.... psssht.

I have a tut on installing Limewire, also for amule both under the networking section of www.opensourcebistro.com, but honestly would prefer you try a site like Jamendo www.jamendo.com, where you can legally download the material.  Also, you could use streamripper (it's in the repo's) to record streams from radio stations.  I should do a tut on that.  It's like Tivo for the radio.  Separates the songs and everything.  There are a lot of options the trick is to find out how to use them and still respect the copyright laws of your country.

I am no fan of sharing through programs like Limewire either.
I use Jamendo myself, as well as Magnatune: http://magnatune.com/
Other resources include http://www.last.fm/ and http://listen.grooveshark.com/
I also go to artists sites and buy directly from them.

I tried Jamendo and looked at Magnatune.

Limewire seems much more easier and found all the songs I was looking for.

The tutorial

http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/11.Network-apps/LimeWire/LimeWire.htm


was immensely helpful.

The tutorial on how to make a desktop launcher was great too.

Thank you so much. :D
