To start with, learn how to post better subject lines.

EDIT: one and a half, learn to post better, more specific questions. Incidentally, the meaning of life is 42.

second, learn to use it

third, once you can use it, learn about its internals, understand it, done, instant administrator.

There is no right way to start, just start working on it. Start with simple tasks which you perform over windows. Try to get that working, if you are stuck then solve the problem, get into detail of it and with in no time you would be an administrator and yeah dont forget to look over this forum and try to help others with your knowledge. The more people you are able to help more good admin you are becoming.
So get started. All the best.
And yeah there is no point metnioning your phone number out here as nobody would call you up to solve your problem but yeh someone might misuse it. And give appropriate subject title so that you get appropriate reply.

Not to be a smart aleck, but a general question deserves a general answer.

I've learned a lot by reading and even more by reading then doing. Start experimenting and have fun. If you get into trouble, ask a specific question in one of the forums. There are plenty of folks willing to help you out at LQ.
