Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well first of all no certification is going to make you a systems administrator. You’ll want to start out looking at the A+ and Network+. After you have those you can look at getting a help desk job. After getting a few years of experience you’ll be able to start thinking about applying for a junior sys-admin position.

    Definitely the certs that Mrdenny mentions. Also, build a test network at home - that's a great way to learn!
