Got an old computer collecting dust? Why not turn it into a downloading monster? The Nerdica weblog offers an exhaustive guide on how to transform an unused computer into a BitTorrent downloader using Ubuntu. The process uses Lifehacker favs Azureus and Hamachi to do the heavy lifting.

In this guide, you'll learn how to set a small headless Ubuntu server used to retrieve BitTorrent files, while even saving them to a external USB hard drive that can be disconnected on the go. You even discover how to remotely administer your server from the Web using SSH, VNC, and an inuitive HTML UI, while being able to retrieve files while you're away from home.

Beginners and command line-haters beware: getting the box up and running using this method is pretty terminal-heavy.
