    it sounds like a kernal panic to me. when it told you to restart, were there a bunch of languages?

    above i put a link to an apple support article on kernal panics. i suggest that you go there and make sure the image of a kernal panic they show is what you saw, and then follow these instructions to post your kernal panic log here so that people who know more about panics can tell you what the problem was.

    The panic log file is named "panic.log", and it is located on your startup disk at:

    /Library/Logs/

    just copy and paste it into a reply

    also, how far had you gotten into the download? had you started installing yet? or still just downloading away?

    Acqlite is a P2P program isn't it? Sounds like the panic was caused because the program interfered with one of the ports.

    Find a different program, or stick to torrents which are much better anyway ;)
