Can I background a task to free up the console?

Is there any way of backgrounding a task on the console so I can get on with other activities? Also are there any unix like shell I can use to automate mundane tasks?

Unfortunately, “no” to both questions. It is better to use rsh/ssh connection for long running tasks so as to not block console; the same can also be used to script your activities (using host side scripting language).
There are also development kit with C/Perl/Java/C# bindings as well as powershell toolkit available.
