Not me, but the README file for bittorrent
(/usr/share/doc/bittorrent*/README.txt) says how to set up for serving.
However, I think you want to set up for peering with the regular torrent as
if you got the DVD via the torrent; that might be done by 1) starting to
fetch the torrent, 2) stopping, 3) replace the file in ZOD with your
complete file, and 4) restarting.  Umm, this is a guess.
