detach a process

I know two ways to do this (probably there are more):

Method 1:
– start the process from the konsole
– put it the background with Ctrl-Z and ‘bg 1’.
– tell the shell to detach the process with the command ‘disown -a’

Method 2:
– start the process with nohup (ie. write the command ‘nohup processname’ instead of ‘processname’. See ‘man nohup’ for an explanation.
