[Bt-discuss] Some download/upload questions for a new user

I'm brand new to this, having stumbled across it while
searching for a copy of a Black Crowes show online. I
haven't traded music since I traded tapes through a
Jefferson Airplane Mailing list in college, about 9
years ago. Things sure are different now.
So different that I'm not sure I know enough even to
get started. Can someone help me out? I managed to
download bittornado, and start downloading that one
show, but I don't know if it's going well or not.
Currently the light is black, which probably isn't
good. Do I need "seeder help?"
Also, I tried to adjust the settings on my firewall,
as suggested on the bt.etree home page, but I'm not
sure I did it right. I noticed that some "leeches"
have their IP addresses "routed" through those buzz
ports, 6881, 6882, etc. and that mine is not. How can
I changed that?
Can I download more than one show at a time? How long
should it usually take? How do I convert to mp3 once
it's downloaded? How do I convert my files to
bittorrent to upload them, and where do I go to do
Any help would be huge. I really appreciate someone
taking the time to lend a hand to a new user. I also
have a pretty big selection of great quality live
shows I'd be glad to open up for sharing, once I
figure out how...
