alternatively, if i try to run the job in the background by typing

stata -b do fe &

where fe is the name of the do file i am trying to run, i get the
following output:
[1] 4570
[1]    Done                 stata -s do fe\

and still, i can't find the job anywhere, or the output from the job.

in the do-file, i specify the directory, set the memory, and open the
file to be used.  does anyone know what i am doing wrong?

thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!
On our Solaris systems, one would give the commands

$ batch
stata -b do fe

and the result would be placed in fe.log. This is true batch -- not background, which is a child process of your terminal session.

Unix and Linux machines do not have 'h' drives, in my experience; smells like
Windows. Is this a dual-boot system?
