I wish to second that.  I am not a Mac user, and the last few posts left
me scratching my head with regard to DMG format (not having any idea
what it was) and torrents.  Morgan is correct most clients allow picking
and choosing of the contents on a Torrent.  In fact I haven't used a
torrent system that didn't.  Although I am sure there must be one
floating around somewhere.
