I'm pretty new to Linux, though I have gotten my feet wet before. At the present time I am running Fedora 17 on my main desktop computer, and CentOS 5 for an apache server.

I'm looking to improve my skills, before I go for classes. I'm looking more into server admin, which seems to be on the networking side.

For thoes who have been in the field for a long time, I was wondering what would be a good goal to work towards, involving this field? (software Managment, web apps, bash scripts, etc"

Thanks ^_^

Welcome to the forum!!

It sounds like you are looking for work ideas/opportunities. First, where are you located?

I recommend talking to possible employers in your area (or someplace you'd be willing to move to), and find out what kind of skills/training they are looking for. Another approach is to pick a company you really want to work for and then get a job there doing **anything**.

If I were 50 years younger, considering a career in IT, I'd be learning everything I could about computer security. (This includes learning everything about networking)

I'm Located in Raleigh, NC at the present time. I have a full time job as a mechanic, and need to move out of the feild into one thats less stress on the body. I want to aim for Redhat itself, cause they are in the area. My problem right now would be, trying to move to a different job, that pays the same that I am making now, or more to cover bills and such. No need to move backwards. I really want to go to school, but until classes open up at a local collage here, I been trying to brush up on some basic, and advance skills.

I shall work on getting a Drupal webapp working on Centos, and maybe even game server, to see if i can maintain them.

Laters and Thanks back to terminal I go
