Command line multitasking
i use one of my old computers in CLI quite a lot, but the problem is that when logged on in text mode, i can only perform one task at a time at the prompt.
is there any way to use several "tabs" while working in the command line interface?All Empires rise and fall. The Microsoft Empire has already risen, only one way to go now...

I second 'screen'. It's very good and it probably comes with all distributions.
But even more simply, if you are at the computer you are using (i.e. not via SSH, etc.) you can try the other virtual terminals. Press CTRL-ALT-F2, ... CTRL-ALT-F6.
They you can press CTRL-ALT-F1 to go back to the initial login, or CTRL-ALT-F7 to go back to X if you started there.
thanks guys, that was just what i was looking for.All Empires rise and fall. The Microsoft Empire has already risen, only one way to go now...
