I use a script to check for other users, so I just made the first command
of the script `nice +19`. All commands run from the script will also be
run at that nice level. A simple script would be:

#/bin/csh -f
nice +19
deschall >& out.txt &

Now `chmod +x` the script file and run it. If you want to see the
progress, `tail -f out.txt` shows it to you.

Lots o' Luck!
