Killing a erlang process.

Good afternoon to everyone,

Defaults:
(OS - Solaris 5.8, Erlang R8B1)

Today my question is about killing and releasing a globally registered process on a node, created in a telnet session, where the telnet session timed out.  (The session was created by running a boot script).  Whenever another session is started - it stops with errors that the global name is already registered.  What is the CORRECT procedure to kill that node and release the resources.  

In the same vain, would (I think it is) it be possible to attach to a currently running node, from a remote telnet session in order to monitor the node operation and the gracefully disconnect?

Thanks for all of you providing us with helpful insight.

Regards
Daniel Schutte
