First off puppy has three bittorrent programs.
The one with a GUI is Azureus you must have java installed to use. Download
Java.pup http://www.murga.org/~puppy/download.php?id=421
Download Azureus.pup

Now once you have everything installed.
Open Azureus it is located in /usr/local/
Once opened download a torrent from let's say me.

Now once you have done that.
Go to Azureus and go to -> File -> Open -> Torrent file
Once it has been opened, go to -> Transfers -> start all

That's it. It will download the file to the place you specified.

Heaven is on the way, until then let's get the truth out!

The java.bin is actually the installer and not a dotpup. If you already have a copy of the bin file: open a console window, make sure the bin file is executable, change to the path you want to install it to and then run it.

cd install-root
chmod +x path-to-file/jre-1_5_0_05-linux-i586.bin

this will install java into install-root/jre-1_5_0_05

path-to-file is where the java bin file is located eg /root/my-documents
install-root is where the java folder and files would be installed eg /root

It would ask a few questions and then install (extract) java.

If you want to use java plugin in your mozilla/firefox you would then have to create a link to the ones install by java bin file. It would be something like this.


ln -s install-root/jre1.5.0_05/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ns7libjavaplugin_oji.so

For opera, it can be done through the browser itself as follows:

Click Tools
then Preferences
select the Advance tab
check Enable java box
click the java options button
click the choose... button and browse to path
click the Validate button to ensure the path is ok
click the [b]ok[b] button until you are back to the main browser window

You may also have to set up some environment variables so that the java libraries (and maybe executable) can be found.

PS I will check the maybes and edit according.
