SMP would be very useful.

As for running in the background, you have a number of options. You can 
use "nohup" to start it up. Such as this:

nohup ./john pwfile &

This will start it in the background (just hit enter to get your prompt back), 
and it will not terminate when you log out.

Use ps to find that it's running, such as "ps -aef | grep john".

Hope this helps.
