How did you get your start doing linux administrator work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

use linux for everything, including breakfast, and slug your way up from 'desktop guy'.. or take a leading linux admin cert course, like RHCE for example and do so a little quicker :)
