Just wondering about next kind of thing...

Is it possible to telnet into another machine and logout so that the things i'm running in there will not close down?

And is there any kind of program that would show me info about my partitions in X and would update the info when it changes? I'm getting little bit tired to use midnight commanders info screen to get that information...

You can use the "nohup" command in from of your program.

I don't use X very much. Most of my time is spent with the commandlines, except for web developing and browsing. So I'm sure someone else will give you suggestions about the X monitoring you're looking for.

As for your first question, you might be interested in a program called "screen" which will let you detach the program that is running from the console and then disconnect. When you reconnect you simply have to issue a command to reconnect that process to the console and voila, it's back still running just like you left it. =)

As for your second question, just open up an xterm and type "df" at the prompt to see how much space you have left on your drives.
