Well, I guess you could try reading Rute! What do you mean by 'administrator' though? Webserver? Fileserver? X server? Something else?

Probably the best way to learn is by trying these things! If you have an old spare computer about at home, try installing all the above things on it, and see if you can getting them working. At the moment I'm trying to set up a Slackware web/mail/file server at home, and Shilo's guide has been quite useful (although I advise against his suggestion to update using swaret!).

Hi,

You present a rather broad question. If it is just admin then a start could be;

If you just want to get experience with systems then get to a machine and load linux distro of choice.
