I gave you a second link. Verlihub is the piece of software which lets you install the DC++ hub onto a Linux box. (You can also install YnHub as a Windows DC++ Server)

Then, you can have friends connect to the hub (running on either Windows or Linux) via DC++ (Windows) or LinuxDC++ (Linux)

Linux Client DC++ Website: http://linuxdcpp.berlios.de/articles.php?um=index

Verlihub or YnHub = DC Servers (Hubs)
LinuxDC++ or DC++ = DC Clients
