well ,i'm looking in the field of system administartion .But being a fresher i'm not keeping any high hopes ,so anything from the ground level i'm ready to take .I completed my computer engineering last year ,after that i've taken few unix classes ,so i wont say i'm aware of every commands and its flags but yea i understand the basic working of a unix system ,how flags affects the working of a command ,how we can setup a series of simple command chained through pipes in order to make a comlex command and file redirection.
what else i should know to cover up whole fundamentals of unix ,as far as i've researched to get into system administration you need to start from system monitoring , is it true , please shed some light Alister.
your replies're much appreciated .

My 2 cents:
people looking for sysadm want people with experience...having certifications can help but it will not be equivalent. I when got my diploma was in the same situation... I accepted a "stage" of 2 years without salary ( because of my age at the time I had to get into working world at any cost...), but after I had 2 years experience... and when I was thinking of leaving, got a contract...

So what'd you suggest VBE ? That i should stick to it no matter how long how i'd have to wait ,if yes then what stepping stones i should undertake to shorten up the waiting period as its already been 1 year for me. Is the fundamentals of unix enough to face interviews ? what'd be the expectations from a freshers with no experience and no certifications ?
