    1. What software are you downloading?
    2. Is it the Mac version?

    You need a torrent client such as Transmission which was previously mentioned. I hope it's legal material. It's always funny when people try and pirate, and yet they need help doing it.

    Transmission is an application that will download the torrents

    You apparently are able to download the software, so that is not your problem

    1. Are you buying this software you are downloading? Toast, etc. If not, you will not find support for illegal downloads here.

    2. You need to make sure you have the Mac version of the software and that it is compatible with Tiger (10.4)

    You are only getting the torrent files... not the software
    I will not judge, but it appears you are attempting to download software you are not paying for... so I will not discuss how to do this

    For DVD/CD burning, you might want to try Toast
