using setInterval, you can continuously execute a function. it's hard to provide sample code, without knowing more, but essentially you could do something like this -

function pollServer() {
    $.get(...., function(response) {
        // response from server should contain update text or
        // a flag to indicate if we should stop polling...

        // if we send back a flag to signal the task is complete...
        if(response... == "complete")
        {
                //stop polling the server
                clearInterval(intervalId);
        }
    })
}

var intervalId = setInterval(pollServer, 5000);

create a function that polls the server, then start calling that function on an interval, storing a reference to the interval's id so that we can stop it later.

in side of the polling function we use jquery to call the server and get a response. based on what is returned (and how it is returned) we can then determine if we should stop executing the polling function or display a message...
