ServerAdmin/NetworkAdmin sound like a great idea. I plan on going to school for a while... im not working my ass off in high school just to go to college for a year.
Ive been looking at these to placeshttp://www.gosiast.com/
What kind of courses would i need to take to get that kind of a job...
Most schools, whether large universities or smaller community colleges, have programs specifically tailored to Network Engineering or Network Administration. If they don't have a specific program, a degree in computer science is the de facto standard for professional IT positions.
Also what are some things that I can do now in high school to try and learn stuff how networks and server managment... I i do right now is monkey around with my pc. I would rather go into the course knowing at least somthing.
For now? Read. Read until your eyeballs bleed. It's entirely possible to know the ins and outs of the job better than some people who've been doing it for a year or so, if you read a shit-load of books on the topics. I'm kind of in the same boat as you. While you haven't made it to college yet, I'm 21 and can't afford to attend college until I'm 23. I decided on a career as a Server/Network Admin about 2.5 years ago. For the sake of job security and personal interest, I narrowed that down to a Linux Server/Network Administration. For me, I started by learning Linux as a user. I currently use Linux for all of my day to day stuff. I reboot into a Windows XP partition to play games. When I'm not tinkering with my own main desktop, I'm messing around with an old PII rig I hacked together with spare parts as a server for my home network. I've got 3 computers all of which are getting DNS and DHCP services from my little server (It's small and it runs Debian Linux, hence, I call it Little Debbie). I've got plans for Postfix SMTP mail and Zmanda backup server duties on the way. I read every chance I can. I eat, sleep , and breath Network Administration. I'm currently studying for my CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) cert, and my MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) in XP Pro (only for the sake of getting an entry level job in the IT field). Doing something similar would probably be your best bet.
If you want to get a feel for being a network administrator, you have to have a network to administrate. Start with your own. Start by having a dedicated computer do lil stuff like DHCP, basic firewall, file server, etc, etc... and move up to more complicated setups. Run web, mail, file, backup, database, proxy servers on a HA cluster (High Availability). Check your log files, rotate backups of config files... you get my point.
I'm not saying i wanna make millions, just enough so a can afford a good pc good house and a motorcycle
Well, as a SysAdmin, you won't make millions. You can easily make a 6 figure income, but that's meaning littler and littler every day with today's inflation. Glad to hear you've got your priorities in check. Who needs a wife and kids when you've got a nice PC, your own house and a motorcycle? You forgot a home theatre while you're at it.
