I need a Tutor
Hello all, please I need a mentor/tutor/guide on being a Linux system admin. Someone that can give a step by step guidance about how to and what to learn. I live in Lagos Nigeria and I have combed the city for a training center for any Unix based operating system and found none. So I decided to come to this forum. Thank you.

You can learn it yourself. Just follow these TLDP guides here.

If you face any problem, you can post it here. We'll be happy to help you.

Good luck!

The traditional approach is to take a junior admin position at an organisation will give you training as you progress. You would have to convince a potential employer of your potential and dedication for this to happen.

Will this not work for you?

Thank you vry much Shivaa, the link is very helpful.
Salasi.. Organisations that make use unix based operating systems are not that many around here and it will be every difficult to convince anyone to take me since i dont even have an educational background in computer so what i feel i can do is what i am trying to do now. Learn the basics on my own then i can now use that as a leverage when i have to apply in any organisation.
Thank you

You need not to worry. It's recommended to download and install Linux (any desired distribution) on your PC on either virtual box or VMware.

Keep reading these guides chapter-by-chapter and keep practicing. And in between this, if you stuck somewhere, you can ask to LQ anytime.

You only need zeal & zest to go ahead. So have good luck!
