Yes, after enabling DHT my BitTorrent client eventually found some
peers and started downloading the ISO.  Probably best not to assume that
all visitors are using DHT, though -- it's not enabled by default on all
BitTorrent clients, and many casual users won't even know what it is.
Adding some reliable trackers to the torrent file would be a more
robust solution.
