    Anyone? When I click on a link to a torrent, Internet Explorer shows a message saying it basically has no clue what the hell to do.

    Am I doing something wrong? I already installed the BT client, but it doesn't seem to be integrated with any browsers yet... Or perhaps I have to tell OS X to open "torrent" files with Bit Torrent?

    I'm new at this, y'all.

    I just got my PowerBook today. Excuse the stupidity.

    Hmm... I would suggest saving the torrent file (control-click and click "save target as" or something like that) and then opening the torrent file. That usually opens up the BT client. When I click on a link of a torrent file on Safari or on Internet Explorer it usually just saves the torrent file anyway. IE or Safari, I think, won't open the BT client automatically... at least not on default presets.
