SQL or Oracle??

I am thinking of getting into Database Administration and I was hoping to get some opinions on which route I should take. Oracle or SQL. Now I know that is kind of like asking Windows or Linux but I really know nothing of the DBA world so I am not sure what path would be more beneficial.

I hear that SQL is really starting to gain ground on Oracle that used to be the enterprise standard. Any truth to this?

I been playing with SQL 2005 virtual labs and I really enjoy what I have been doing. Is it even possible for a sys admin to make the jump to be a DBA by just self training alone or is this something I need to go back to school for?
