    Please elaborate on what you mean by "best Cert on Linux for Standards and cyclelife of certification".

    Aside from the Linux+ as a beginner cert, I think you're going to want to go for the RHCE if you're serious about Linux. I don't think the others have the recognition to make them worthwhile.

    I think the market would agree that Red Hat certifications are most in demand.

    RHCT (Red Hat Certified Technician) - is the culmination of an entry-level linux course plus a second-level linux course.
    RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) - is the culmination of the previous plus an additional third-level course.

    There are further Red Hat certifications down the line, but these are the most popular and the easiest to achieve.

    "Linux is Linux" is much like saying a person is a person...we may look different on the outside, but we all have the same organs and bones that allow us to live and breathe. Different Linux distributions are usually very similar in the fundamental things that make it Linux.

    All of this doesn't really matter if you know who you want to work for and what Linux distribution they'll use. In that case, you find out what they're using and learn it over all others.

    I've always leaned towards taking lpi certifications, because I dont like vendor specific certs except for Cisco...

    Still Red hat certifications are the only ones I know that have a lab part involved, right??

    Should I change my mind about taking lpi certs and go for RH certs?

    With LPI you will learn a good deal more in comparison to Linux+....why not take LPI 1 (and maybe even 2) and use those as stepping stones for the RHCE?

    I actually like the way LPI is setup. I just don't think it has the recognition of the RHCE.

    Linux REDHAT is the best Certification on the market with high Demmand.

    I plan to start studying Linux in a few months. I am really a novice when it comes to Linux, don't know much about anything icon_lol.gif. I am wondering which cert I should start off studying for. I desire to start with LPI, but I don't know the level of difficulty of this material. Should I start off studying for Linux+ instead?

    you can start with anything, Linux+ or LPI.

    and you don't have to start with certifications, because the weight on experience is much more in the *NIX area in general. So you can get any Linux administration book from amazon, and start with it. Later you can certify easily - if you get the experience ;)
    Certs: GSTRT, GPEN, GCFA, CISM, CRISC, RHCE

    That's true. I actually have two Linux books, so I could start with those in a few months. What is the best Linux distribution to use as a learning tool? My brother has Ubuntu on his computer.

    I would say that Linux+ is a good place to start for most people. I felt like I learned a LOT when going through the training material towards that particular cert, and I'm a better admin for it. I did look at LPI certifications for a while, which is probably a good road for you to choose if you're looking for the most versatile of the high-level Linux certs (LPI-3 should be the goal). The RHCE is definitely the most well-recognized Linux cert in the industry, so you have to make the choice if you want to focus on one flavor or Linux or not.

    If you are starting, it doesn't really matter what distro you go for right now, they're all the same to you right now. Choose any distro, debian or rpm doesn't matter right now. Myself I'd choose Red Hat or SuSE, most probably Red Hat as I see it deployed a lot in production.

    hi jizay,
    What is the best Linux distribution to use as a learning tool?

    the easy way is probably mix and match your learning distro with those 2 books you already have, if they are new books then i'm pretty sure those books will referenced any rpm-based like fedora or centos, or debian-based distro like ubuntu - because those 2 currently are the most well-documented distros.

    and for the firewalling part - try to avoid using SuSE at first - because it has some weird thing to configure.
    My brother has Ubuntu on his computer.

    you can start using vmware as your learning sandbox - so you dont have to break your brother machine.

    HTH.
    the More I know, that is more and More I dont know.

    Thanks for the info guys. I actually look forward to getting done with MCSE soon so I can play around with Linux.
    The RHCE is definitely the most well-recognized Linux cert in the industry

    I can definitely see why! I just found out that it's a 5 hour hands on test! That's a cert that holds weight.

    And I have seen people getting job offers right after passing RHCE, so it does have weight
