Hello again Dave, and all readers,

Well I finally got Torrent to work for me. Did I mention I am running
UbuntuStudio? I though I had all the necessary torrent files, but I
apt-get'ed everything I could find and  then ran this:

/usr/bin/btlaunchmany.bittorrent /usr/local/src/

That got all of the 432330752 and put everything into a different
directory. Then it continued to run ticking off speed but no
additional bites. I had to kill it with a CTL-c. I guess I will need
to read up on Torrent.

Thanks for your offer and suggestions.
