I've never used BitTorrent before, but I just installed it on my older PC, 
read the instructions about opening the required ports, and found that 
Firestarter has a named policy specifically for use with BitTorrent. Thanks, 
Tomas, for making it so easy.

Started it running maybe half an hour ago and it says it's got about 44 hours 
to run with 1.4% completed. I'm not in a desperate hurry to get my CDs burned 
- need to get a faulty power supply replaced before I can build a machine to 
install it to - but it will be interesting to see how long it takes the 
Torrent to get the files so soon after the new FC4 distribution has been 
released.
