Like Todd I haven't had a need...I think you should start by typing:
man btmakemetafile

That seems to be the appropriate thing.

I've tried 'man bt...' for all the bt* commands. Unfortunately, they are not very helpful. 'man {anything}' tends to be great once you know what you are doing and need a reference, but not so great as an introduction or tutorial.

In summary: on Libranet, to install both client and server (tracker) software:

apt-get install bittorrent -t unstable

Read the docs:

zcat /usr/share/doc/bittorrent/README.txt.gz | less

I also subscribed to the Yahoo!Groups lists for BitTorrent:

So far, I've gotten a tracker running and a .torrent file made. I now just need to figure out how to modify my apache settings, "join" the web server with the tracker, and modify my NAT/FW to allow connections through. Where I'm stuck is that I'm not clear on how the tracker knows where the ISO is.

That'll be tonight's project. Again, if anyone wants to pair-up to stumble through this together, I'm game.
