DOH! thanks for pointing out my mental mistake, my ref source books are using % vs &...got a bit messed up there.

When I placed & in the script I get it to run in the background but get the stty: : No such device or address error.

Using ./script & runs nicely in the background but doesnt allow me to stop it (short of kill)...

You've all given me great advice and I thank you all...going to hack around on this and see if I can get it to play the way I want.

Again Thanks!

if you use ./script &

when you get your prompt back you can type "fg" adn it will bring that backgroup process to the fourground then you can control C to stop it.
