Default How do I get computer to do lots of little tasks?

I actually don't know if I need to know this just yet, I'm waiting on an email.

I have a tri-core computer, not the AMD thing, but an Intel quad-core with something screwy going on with Ubuntu. I'd like to assign a bunch of NewPGen tasks to the computer, and as soon as one completes the next one starts up. So, if I had ten assignments, the first 3 would start up immediately, then as each finished, the next unstarted would would be assigned right after it.

Would this be difficult to implement?

Apparently, he only skimmed the email I sent, so all I got was advice. So, I guess I'm not starting a sieving effort, and I still don't know what to enter in the username and password field.

Jasong,

You can use srsieve in combination with batch jobs?
Or shell scripts?

It's not of concern now.

I guess the problem is that I have no faith in myself to be self-taught.
