The nohup command will only take care of any output produced by the
program aswell as let you ignore the sighup signal, if the program needs
input the problem still exists as in my case.

Both Thomas Knox and Darren Dunham suggested to have the program
rewritten.  This is something I will look into but if possible I will
install screen.  Mark Neill also suggested screen as the best solution.

Screen will let me run a program in a virtual terminal window that can
be detached and reattached to at any time.  This way I will be able to
run as many highscoreservers as I want and still be able to use the
built-in menu.

Screen can be found at http://www.gnu.org/software/screen/
