That's fine - and makes sense. As has already been suggested, the best
way to get into adminning is to do a support role in a company and get
friendly with the admins. Then you'll easily climb the tree.
Just as a thought - I wouldn't hire someone with the certification and no
experience and then give them root access to the systems - this applies
accross Linux, Windows and Cisco certifications.
