increase pid priority


Hi.... i want to increase the priority of a process.... for eg when i compile sth i want to boost it a little... Lets assume that i know the pid of the process how i can increase the priority? If i change the priority then does this change can affect the priority of children processes ?
When compiling a new linux kernel i have noticed that the make creates many other processes ... how i can increase the priority of the whole kernel recompile task... ?

afaik, after the process is started is impossible.
but you can call the app with defined priority levels.
Code:
man nice

Oh well, stay calm. After all, who can know by heart all the 27.000 plus(?) builtins of bash, including their options, switches and whatnots?
