This could easily cross over to the Linux advocacy group, where a discussion
would focus on future trends of operating systems. My personal opinion is
that Linux will continue to expand, gnawing at portions of another
operating system(s) for the x86 architecture. In that sense, looking years
ahead, Linux system administration seems like a much-worthy investment.

The first step would be to become a(n advanced) Linux user and expand
knowledge and familiarity with the platform. System administration is not a
completely separate domain of Linux use. It does, however, tend to focus on
different aspects of operation, at a different level of granularity. By
learning Linux at increasingly high levels (e.g. by selecting books aimed
at varying levels of expertise), you (or your friend) can gradually elevate
yourself (or himself) to the level of so-called sysadmin.
Hope it helps,
