first you use: ps
this will show you all processess running ("ps | less" if you want to see the results page by page)
Then you look for the PID of the process you want to terminate.
After this use: kill pid
(where PID is the number in the first column of the ps command)
they explain it here: http://webtools.live2support.com/linux/kill.php

'ps' actually only shows you the tasks started in that shell. To see all running tasks, use:
