1) Dedicated "LINK" sites - The most important difference would be the "Link" websites. These sites are the easiest way to find what you are looking for. Not only does it make searching easier but you can rest assured that 99.99% of the links on those sites will allow you to d/l the file your looking for. There are no misnamed files, no undersized files and no rips (unless specifically stated). Cant find anything you like on the main pages of a "link" site? No problem, most "link" sites have a forum where you can search for a file or request a file.
2) File Hashing - basically the donkey doesn't find a file by name. Any file being shared on the donkey is checked and "hashed". eDonkey doesn't look for files by name but rather by hash. This helps in avoiding misnamed files.
3) Chunk Sharing - The donkey allows users to share "chunks" of data. In other words a user does not need to have the whole file in order to share it. As a user d/'s a file that portion becomes shared so other users can d/l it.

redownload that part of the file and replace the
corrupted portion with an uncorrupted portion.
Obviously this will make the file size seem bigger on
the donkey interface. No need to worry, perfectly
normal and actually one of the best donkey features.

shut down the donkey, find the file in the temp
directory (if you cant remember which file it is, simply
find the file with only one part, files not completed
will have two parts in the temp directory.) Once you
find the file name it to whatever you like but make sure
you rename it with the correct extension.

The best way is to use the "link sites", which can be found in the eDonkey Guide
The forums at Sharereactor and Filenexus are also a valuable tool. You can search through there for anything you can think of and if you don't find it make a request.
Jigle is an external search engine where you can look for a specific file.
You can also use eDonkey's own internal search but more than likely you will never use this feature since the first 3 will just about get you anything you want.
