Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First I want to thank you all in advance for any and all responses. Now let me explain my self a little bit at what I am trying to do. I have a process that run in a virtual terminal and due to the way it is designed and programed it runs this way for a reason. Note I am not teh developer of teh program so I don't fully understand why it has to be in that terminal window but it does. Now I connect to this system remotely and for me to do what I need to do I have to stop that process which I do via the process of doing ps -e to find teh processes PID so I can run my kill command. Yeah Now the proggy is dead. I run my commands and take care of what I need to do remotely. and I am finished. oh note I remote in and can not change to that or any other virtual window I do every thing I need to do from a home directory. Now Since I am done what I want to do is run the command to force teh process to run in teh virtual terminal I want it to run in so when the people that work on teh machine physically come in it is up and running and as far as they know their system never had any problems you know like as if I had been at the location and done teh work and then brought their system back to its normal working state.
Also note this is within a non X enviroment everything is from command line.
if you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

Lol yeah I have issue with that when typing fast and I never even notice it but have people telling me I do it all the time.
I am connecting to the system via telnet
when I connect it places me in a console
what I mean by Virtual Terminal is if you on a Linux or Unix system while sitting at the keyboard of the physical machine you can type either alt + F(number) or ctrl + alt + F(number) or as in my situation our servers are set to use alt+Print Screen + F(number)
Ok fair enough. So in your original post, you stated:

As far as I know the virtual terminal at the main window and terminal is not the same terminal session as you will get when you telnet in.
Sorry, but the part of your description that reads "as far as they know their system never had any problems" needs some clarification. What does that mean exactly?
