KTorrent problem--how to seed?

I used KTorrent to download SUSE 10. Now I want to share it with others. It was uploading nicely, till I rebooted the machine. Now when I restart KTorrent, it doesn't start seeding automatically. I want to act as a seed again but can't figure out how to get the process started. I tried creating a new torrent for my files. But it asked me to enter a list of seed trackers. I put in addresses like, but these didn't work. How do I find a list of active seed trackers? Thanks.

Azureus seeds automatically.

If you are doing torrents, you really ought to check it out. It's quite nice.

I've noticed that the version of ktorrent on Suse 10 is very buggy. I installed the development version and it works fine. Seeding is done automatically after the download of your files is complete.
