Just as a FYI, the bittorrent packages in Fedora Extras include 
initscripts for running trackers and seeders as services running in the 
background.

For example, to run a seeder for FC4.2-Unofficial-i386.torrent, you 
would just dump the FC4.2-Unofficial-i386.torrent file (and, if you've 
already downloaded the data, the FC4.2-Unofficial-i386 directory and its 
contents) into the bittorrent data area (/var/spool/bittorrent for FC3, 
/srv/bittorrent/data for FC4 and later) and run (as root):

# service btseed start

Paul.
