I assume you're familiar with the 'fg' and 'bg' commands?
And for the starting upon boot you can always add an rc.mytasks to the bootscripts folder and point rc.M towards it like this:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.mytasks] ; then
echo "starting custom tasks script"
echo "custom tasks script not executed"
Or something like that.
Or put something like that in .bashrc if you want them upon login instead. Dunno if this is what you're looking for though.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
