Most organizations have some Linux in place by now, so if you're a system administrator, you should try to gain some experience at work. Ask the Linux guys questions, and show that you're interested in learning. If they go to Linux user group meetings, then go with them. Meetings are also a good way to gain exposure to many Linux applications so you can get a feel for what interests you most. If you're lucky, you're employer will realize that you're an asset, and send you for training.
