To Sun Managers:

Thank you very much for such a quick response.

Most of the answers are to use the 'nohup' command. Before posting, I
tried using the 'nohup' command however I stop or thought it won't work
when a prompt 'you have running jobs' after I issued the command exit.
But much to my chagrin, I have to issue another 'exit' command as suggested
by one reply.

Special thanks goes to the following Sun-Managers and the rest for not
flaming me on a seemingly trivial question:
Louis Hoo
Rahul Roy
Aaron Lafferty
Charlie Mengler
Patricia Morgan
Tim Evans
Robert G. Ferrel
Sanjaya Srivastava
Peter Polasek
Brion Leary
