For starters, get some books from O'Reilly & assoc, look at www.ora.com.
Their "Essential System Administration" is very good. Also check out "UNIX
System Administration Handbook" by Nemeth, Snyder, Seebass and Hein, published
by Prentice-Hall. Also get any of the UNIX books by Mark G. Sobell that
are published by Benjamin/Cummings. And keep going to school! Get as much
contact with knowledgable people as you can, if they see you are capable and
interested, most will be very helpful to you. Talking to people who really
know what UNIX is all about is probably the most valuable thing you can do
to learn UNIX.
Also keep reading the usenet groups that are relevant. After awhile you'll
get a feeling for who is factual and who is not really that knowledgable.

That's the way every sys admin has felt at the start of their career! <grin>
Keep plugging at it, we've all gone through times when we think we know what's
going on only to be slapped down by something that makes pick ourselves up,
dust ourselves off, grab our tush with both hands and learn more about UNIX!
