Something like the /w or /p (Dos) in linux??

Hi, i've got a tiny problem that i've been wondering about.
When i'm not in X (the ctrl-alt-F1 thingy) and i do 'ps -ux' to list the processes, the list is too big to fit on my screen, and it 'scrolls' of my monitor, and I can't see the upper processes. Is there a way to get it to fit the screen, and then press i.e. space to let the list go further?

Just pipe the output of the ps caommnad into another program eg "less" or "more" - less is the successor to more (ie. less is more ) so I would use less:
ps -ux | less

Alternately you can press <Shift><PageUp>/<PageDown> to scroll backwards/forwards.
