in a previous message I said:
I start netscape on an rxvt-Term. I forgot to send it in the Background by
not giving "&" at the end of the command line. So I hit "^Z" on the terminal I
started netscape. Nothing happens for a long time or at all.

To be more exact: The command prompt dosen't return.

So I can "bg" as proposed by some people.
