Check out www.theregister.co.uk and read the BOFH stories, they should help you become a "very" good sysadmin

Try getting on an undergraduate course with IBM, this way you will get some experience and a degree and probably a job offer as well.

lol if you mean how to be a CERTIFIED system admin.. as in havng a certificate.. i would look on taking up IT Systems Administration courses.. or to make sure get MCSE or ComSci.. though ComSci is a 3 year course it would give you enough understanding on how everything works... NOTE that what you have learnt this year would be obselete within two years maximum.. thats why some computer specialists still take courses if they want to be more updated..

If you dont' have budget for instructor-led training. Try reading books about the MSCE track.

There is a degree course call computer systems and networks this course is designed not only to cover the required information for the technical side of network administration but all so has a small section on business and law. This course is 4 years. The third year is based in industry in the field you wish to specialise in, I myself am choosing to enter into network administration, so I have a placement within the collage to work with the network administrator for a year, this I hope will give me a greater understanding of the job itself. The idea is that the student comes out with knowledge of both the IT side of network administration as well as a basic understanding of business/law concepts which might be required in practice though not directly related to network administration, perhaps there is a similar course available near you at you local collage.
