How do I go about. My goal is to administer linux servers. How much time it will take for me and how difficult it is?
If you're a Windows administrator now, you should already know the answers.
How much time and how difficult it is, depends on you, what you're trying to learn, in what environment, and how deeply you WANT to learn. The question is sort of like asking "how high is up?". Some administrators are responsible for EVERYTHING on the server (apps, databases, etc.); some don't. Some administrate five servers....some 5000.
