RE: Bittorent question

dpkg -L bittorrent (or the name of the pkg you installed)

It provides the locations for the docs and binaries/scripts.

Subject: Bittorent question

Last night I installed bittorrent on my server so that I could use it to
download/seed some files but I can't seem to get anything to download
via BT.
 I've used BT on Windows and other Linux distros (but never debian)
any post-install configuration but this time it doesn't seem to be
for me.

I've installed all the necessary python libs and stuff as well as the
bittorrent and bittorrent-gui packages.  I would think that after
this stuff BT should take over when I click on a download link but it

Where is BT installed to and how do I start it?  I'd like to run it in a
command window instead of GUI if possible.  I searched google but didn't
really find the kind of information I'm looking for.  All I was able to
was "click on a link and BT will download it for you" but that doesn't
to be the case with this box.

I'm running Sarge with a 2.4 kernel.  Can you guys point me in the right
