specify in your client the max. number of simultaneous downloads.

Hmmm wasn't this question just asked? It's not a good idea to download more than one at a time, screws up your bandwidth. Better to let just each file download by itself with the others queued.

That's the "technical" answer, but it doesn't take into account real-world factors, like seed numbers, etc. For example, if you want to download five torrents, and they all have, say, only one seeder and a couple of leechers, you have a much greater chance of using your bandwidth productively if you download all five at once. Very few torrents max out your bandwidth on their own.

And to answer the original question, the easiest way to download more than one torrent at a time is to use a more developed bittorent client, such as Azureus or ABC.
