Ok, so it's an odd topic, but I'm kinda curious. There's a temporary student job about to open up in my college. They basically just want someone to maintain a computer lab and some servers, all running Suse Linux. It pays very well, so I'm wondering if I can pull it off.
I've been using linux as my only OS (other than at work) since Warty. I don't know anything particularly special about the OS, or administration in general, other than the fact that I've installed dozens of distros on several machines and I'm getting to the point that I can troubleshoot problems and know where to look for solutions.
The lab is used for computational fluid dynamics, so I think it'll be mostly grad students and probably lightly used. It's estimated as a 10 hr/month job (salaried), so it doesn't sound like I'd be loaded with issues... meaning if I looked at it as a 20 hr/week job I'd probably have enough time to sort out whatever issues crop up.
So, do you think I could pull it off?
