    If you press ctrl-s it will stop the terminal from scrolling so you can use shift-pgup/pgdown without the terminal scrolling ahead. Press ctrl-q to un-lock the terminal.

    Your terminal program might not jump down after you press shift-pgup. I'm pretty sure aterm jumps ahead. It might even be a setting somewhere.
