I have installed Bitcoin QT and I have also downloaded bootstrap.dat from a torrent. I am having trouble in adding bootstrap.dat to Bitcoin QT. Please guide me. Thanks.

Place bootstrap.dat in the bitcoin data directory and then start Bitcoin-Qt. It will read the file to create the blockchain. The file will be renamed to bootstrap.dat.old when this is completed to prevent reprocessing when Bitcoin-Qt is restarted.

You can locate the data directory by reading this.
