seeding with ktorrent?

Hi everyone, I am new to Linux and so far I am loving it. I already got the Slackware CD's, but I read somewhere that I could help by seeding through Bittorrent. So right now I am downloading the CD's again with KTorrent and was just wondering, How do I seed? I have never used these torrent things before, so is there something in particular I need to do? or will they seed automatically once they are downloaded? I apologize if this is a stupid question, but as I say, I am new to this and any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance,

Once the download is complete, you will move over to seeding without any effort on your part. As long as you have both the torrent file and the corresponding data, you will seed.
