Why not login via SSH as a USER, su to root, create a cron job to run your
script then log out. Being that the cron job executes as root it should keep
the script running after you log out.

Subject: logging out leaving a command running

I'm on the road for work.  I have a mythtv box set up at home
recording HD content.  I can ssh into my network, and execute a script
on my ubuntu workstation that transcodes shows I chose.  I have to
stay logged in for the script to continue.

 I want to beable to log in real quick start the command log out with
the confidence that the script will continue.
Any suggestions?
