Advice for entering Linux field
I have been working in the Telecommunications industry for six years as a CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) developer and, having been recently layed off, I am looking to get into Linux system admin field.
I was a Unix admin for ten years before I got into the telecommunications field and see Linux as a a viable means of taking advantage of the System V Unix experience that I already have.
I'm studying Red Hat's guide to networking and system admin and hope to get certified (RHCE) in a few months.
Does anybody have any advice or suggestions regarding how I'm going about this or any ideas about getting a "foot in the door" so that I can get some experience with this OS?
