Using a Stitch Holder

I am a beginner knitter and I am making my one year old daughter a pair of knitted pants (longies) to wear over her cloth nappies this coming winter. It's a very basic pattern knitted flat and I have knitted the 1st leg and I am about to start the 2nd leg but I have managed to get completely stumped at the part where it says to:
Leave stitches on a stitch holder.
I have put the stitches from the 1st leg onto the stitch holder and now I have no idea what to do with the wool. Do I break it off? Do I leave it joined to the 1st leg and somehow cast on with the same wool to do the 2nd leg? Also when it comes to:
slip stitches from the stitches holder onto left hand needle
Which way up do I put it back on? With the wool tail at the top?

Sorry I am probably making this more confusing than it needs to be because I have been staring at it all afternoon. Thanks to anyone who can help me.

I would break the yarn from the first leg and then cast on and knit the other leg.

As for slipping the stitches off the left needle, when the time comes you need to make sure that the yarn is at the end of the needle with the point.
