    You could do this:
    nohup $command

    But I always usea trick I find works with bash, so when your in a
    bash shell do this:

    #start another bash shell
    bash
    #start your background job
    command &
    #exit the subshell
    exit
    #exit your ssh connection
    exit

    That should work.
