yum install bittorrent-gui bittorrent

These are available through Fedora Extras. After their install you then
are able to use your browser to point to the torrent link and in the
following popup choose to use bittorrent for that source. You then will
be asked where to save the content. During the torrent download/upload
you will have a small tool's window showing you transfer speeds and
little more.
