torrent client suggestions

What about the standard clients? BitTorrent, BitTornado and CTorrent
come to mind. All should be Debian packages, but newer versions of
BitTorrent might require a GUI. I think any recent client should
support trackerless torrents. In Debian, look for py-bittorrent and
py-bittornado if the standard package names don't show anything. I
haven't used CTorrent. I'm not 100% sure that they support IPv6 but I
would think so because the standard BitTorrent client supports proxies.
Other than CTorrent, they're written in Python so you shouldn't have to
build from source regardless. If Debian doesn't have anything, look at
the Gentoo ftp archive. They seem to have older and different packages,
not always present in Debian.
Also, how did you actually set up a user-mode-linux VM? I looked at the
user-mode-linux package and it looks like it's just the kernel with no
obvious way to set up a shell or run processes under it. I would like a
virtual server without the hassle and resource overhead of a VM such as
Xen. I'm still interested in xen but it looks fairly complicated to set
up. All I really need is a virtual Linux server for web and email, not
a full virtual machine.
