How can I execute a program, but send it to the background?

Execute the file as normally but add the & sign.

Sample
root@acute [/scripts]# /scripts/ftpupdate&
[1] 26371
root@acute [/scripts]#

Type jobs to see any programs running in the background. You can type fg to bring it back to the foreground.
