You mean Ctrl-Z and bg and fg? These don't work if you log off.

I can't really cron this stuff, since I don't know how long each process will take, and I need to run each in sequence, but need to verify the previous run was successful before kicking the next one off (it's essentially a batch load of data to the DB, the script calls a process to load it). So, I need to start them manually.

I'll try the sh option. My understanding was you only needed that if your files weren't set as executable.
