Easily... You just need to know a little about UNIX shell scripts...

For example, if you wanted to run a program in the background you would
execute it as follows: reflector4.00.3.Solaris &

Basically, you just execute the program, with whatever switches are
needed, and follow it with an ampersand (&).

The program should dump a PID, and other status messages to whatever
console you launched it from.

See ya...
