    Here is a FAQ on BitTorrent:
    http://www.dessent.net/btfaq/

    I use the uTorrent client : http://www.utorrent.com/
    It's very small, lightweight (it's a single EXE file, so no install necessary), and works great.

    As for searching for torrents, a simple search on google will show you more than enough. Too many of them have illegal content (and with illegal content comes spyware and viruses), so I can't recommend them.
