Problem using "man" in Terminal


Hi,

In Fedora 5, I opened Terminal and entered "man crontab" and then the Help is displayed. Then I saw : so I pressed enter to scroll to view more text. Eventually I saw END. But from here how can I go back to the command line? It seems I am stuck here. I have to close the window if I need to use the command line again.

thanks.
