I can;t find a previous thread I have seen on this, (but I have seen something ages ago when someone asked the same thing)

How do I bit torrent things? (If thats even the right way to say it!)

Can anyone point me to a very clear step by step guide. I've read things about port forwarding and stuff, eek...so I just need a very clear step by step guide.

From a straw poll on one thread transmission seems popular. So I'll download that.

but any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thankyou!!!

get a mac client called transmission. Then search which ports in your router you need to open to allow the torrents to pass your firewall. i think that's how it happens.
