Hi all,

This is a general plea really for suggestions about how to get a job  
that utilises  my skills and enthusiasm for Linux, especially  
LAMP-Based technologies.

I am currently working on a Helpdesk supporting Windows and an IBM  
eSeries server which runs OS/400.  Whilst the OS/400 stuff is  
interesting, the helpdesk side of things is not, therefore I'm  
thinking that it's time to start looking at moving on and I want to  
work with my real love in the computing world - Linux.

I can program in PHP and MySQL, create websites in xHTML and I always  
use CSS for layout and accessibility. I have several years experience  
of running my own personal servers for hosting sites including the use  
of Apache vHosts and I am familiar with Ubuntu, Gentoo, AIX and  

I've also played briefly with Solaris and HPUX, but I've only done  
very basic things with them.

If anyone has any roles out there that they feel I may fit into,  
please let me know. Also, if anyone has any advice on how to get a job  
in the Open-Source world, that would be great - I'm sure its something  
that a number of people on this list may be interested in.

I've decided it's time to move away from the helpdesk and towards  
systems administration.  If I get there via web programming, then  
that's an added bonus.

Cheers and thanks in advance,
