start batch, exit session

I would like to start a session, start running a batch, and then log off the system.
I sometimes work from home, and would like to be able to dial in remotely, start a process, and then log off, so I dont have to tie up my phone line for the several hours the batch runs. I am using SCO v5. Thank You for any advice.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is a command called "nohup" for such cases.
It redirects the output of a command to a file ("nohup.out")
and prevents it from being killed when you log off.
For example:
> nohup my-batch-process &
> logout
