Hi all,

thanks a lot for all your feedback. The response to this question was 
overwhelming. Most of you suggested to use nohup or screen. This did not 
work for me out of the box. I finally wrote a wrapper script

/bin/MyFirstProcess >/dev/null 2>&1 &
/bin/MySecondProcess >/dev/null 2>&1 &

and called that with

nohup startAllMyStuff &

This works like a charm!

Thanks a lot,
