Depends on your preferences. Being an old cli guy, I like rtorrent. I
currently have on my CentOS 4.7 box

   rtorrent-0.8.0-1.el4.rf
   libtorrent-0.12.0-1.el4.rf

from rpmforge. Be warned: on CentOS 4, libtorrent 0.12.4 did not work
properly. I would not accept keyboard input. I've posted about this to
the rpmforge list and am awaiting a reply. When I put the old one back
in, all was good.

I don't run it on my 5.2/3 box, so I can't help there.
