    Seedbox installation is pretty simple. If you're running Windows, all you need to do is install uTorrent/Azureus/your favorite client and you're good to go. If you use Linux, you can either install TorrentFlux, uTorrent through Wine, or rTorrent.

    You basically would just have to install a FTP server as well as a torrent client on your dedicated server. A "seedbox" isnt a special peice of software which I can assume you think it is. Its more of just a server dedicated to just seeding files.

    There are several ways to get the .torrent files to the server. You can use uTorrent's WebUI, FTP, SSH, Remote Desktop Connection (Windows) or VNC.

    All depends which Operating system you have installed on the server.

    No, when an uploader adds a torrent, they are responsible for seeding the torrent. You need to add the .torrent to your client on the seedbox and have it download before you can seed. This can be done automatically with RSS feeds, I believe.
