You have to download the .iso file and create a torrent file. See: http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Torrent

I'd recommend using the linuxtracker.org site for uploading the torrent file. Others may then download the torrent file (a few megabytes in size) and begin to download the actual .iso file via the Bit-Torrent protocol.

You need to make separate torrent files for pae and non-pae (after downloading the .iso of each one of course).

Glad to see someone without bandwidth limits jump in. I used to torrent a lot. Not with the constraints I have now (my ISP throttles heavily for torrents and I also have limits on totals). Though that may change next year at present it's not a realistic option for me.

Thanks Lucky9. I think I have a torrent created in my box now but cannot figure out how to get it to linuxtracker. At least I got this far.

I have a question about the 'Info Hash' line at: http://linuxtracker.org/index.php?page= ... cec789d6e1

Is the "b5f1b63cbabc73ae2e623955128361cec789d6e1" hash supposed to be the md5sum of the MX-14.3-pae.iso, the MX-14.3-pae.torrent file you download, or something else?

For the MX-14.3-pae.iso I have "bf49e847f940f29aae9e05d67db4b2b4", which agrees with the md5sum here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/antix-l ... l/MX-14.3/

For the MX-14.3-pae.torrent file I have a md5sum of: "adb533cf70c4e12e31412be82fed82ad".

Don't have the answer, Kent. But it seems like it is something else entirely.

I do know that the 'Info Hash' "b5f1b63cbabc73ae2e623955128361cec789d6e1" does not match either:

1. The md5sum for the file created by me (MX-14.3-pae.torrent) and uploaded to Linuxtracker, which is "43f51dc7663fc73163c217e177f1e36e"

2. The md5sum for the torrent file that was then created by Linuxtracker (MX-14.3-pae.torrent) for download, which is "7a459fcd61f0cac64384bcefdd2c7348"

I thought something was wrong because I wasn't showing anything being uploaded, but I took another look at http://linuxtracker.org/index.php?page= ... cec789d6e1 and there were 0 leechers.
