I have installed this and went to a site to try it out.  I must be missing 
something with jfw in the settings screen because I can't seem to change my 
upload/download rates.  A file I tried to download said that I had 35 days time 
remaining for a download?  Is this right? or, is jfw not focussing on a 
settings button?

  Hi torrents are used to download big filees from otheer people. It doesn't 
work quite like kazaa and otheer per to per sharing programs. What happens is 
you are getting bits of a file from other people who are downloading thee same 
thing. So, the more people you have downloading the same file as you, the 
faster you can get the file. Also while you are downloading a file someone else 
is getting bits of the file from your system as well. You use bit torrent 
program to download these files. All you havee to do is install the program bit 
torrent. Then you find torrent sites that have trackers to connect to in order 
to download thesee files. Example, I went on a site, and was ablee to find Star 
wars Revenge of thee Sith. I downloaded it, and played it using the vlc 
software. You can go to bit torrent. Oops You can go to to 
get the program. Jaws speaks all the install prompts. Once thee program is 
installed, you don't need to do anything else with that program, just find 
torrent sites to go to.

    Hi all,
    I have seen several post lately dealing with something called bit torrent.  
could someone explain what is bit torrent, and is there any Jaws freely bit 
torrent software?
    Thanks for the help,
