Share processor time between calculations

I`m running Mathematica 4.2 on XP. I should try to solve an integral which seems 
to be rather complicated. Now I`m searching for a way to do that integral 
in the background with let`s say 30% CPU-power and do some other 
calculations with Mathematica with 70% CPU power. Is that possible. Can Mathematica do 
some Multitasking or Multithreading?.

By the way, the integral is 

Integrate[f,{p,pmin,pmax},{t,tmin,tmax}] with

f=\!\(\@\((\(-b\) - m\ p + \(c\_\(0, 0\) + t\ c\_\(0, 1\) \
+ p\ c\_\(1, 0\)\)\/\(d\_\(0, 0\) + t\ d\_\(0, 1\) + p\ \
d\_\(1, 0\)\))\)\^2\/\(b + m\ p\)\)

Is there a solution at all? I tried it on a Pentium450 all night long it 
didn't get a result. Is there some hope to crack this one?

Thank you

Oliver Friedrich
