Personally, I like the free program "GNU screen" that you can compile  
if it isn't already installed. This gives you access to multiple  
virtual terminals that can be detached and later reattached to see  
the output.

Alternatively you can just use "&" at the end of a command to run it  
in the background.

See the manual. Gromacs constraints use LINCS by default.
