Install KTorrent. It has a good GUI and you can find help on the Internet easily.

The advantage of a torrent download is that there is automatic error checking. So the file you are downloading is guaranteed to be the correct file.

You also help speed up the torrent because your computer will upload the part of the file that is already on your computer. This makes for a faster download because more people are uploading.

This is the opposite of a regular download where the more people are downloading a file the slower the downloading will be.
