there are so many options available that it's really hard to say "this is what you should do"...

if you're a hardware junkie you could get some certifications and maybe work at a pc repair shop or something of that nature

if you're a software junkie you can do the same

if you like the concepts of networking you can go to school and learn alot more about networking and maybe be a network tech or system administrator etc... (i went to ITT for 2 years and now i'm a network admin of my very own network...)

it's really a matter of where your interests lie

thanks, i like the idea of working in a small shop,
the other work sounds cool though as a job title, I.T/NETWORKING,
a friend of mine is an engineer for supermarkets, its a lot of travelling but the actual jobs are tiny easy peasy, he asks me stuff and has offered to get me a job there,but its one of those jobs where driving is essential,thx i will read up on those options you sent ie, it/networking/shop thx a lot.

working as a engineer for supermarkets hgas many small broblems.
The thing is not to solve the problem but 2 discover what it is.
Many times its the between the chair and the keyboard.
U need 2 learn the basics and get experiance it is what counts

Class would be highly recomended. If you want to get into networking chances are they might need you to have linux experiance since alot of servers use linux.

I think the best thing to do would be to find your local community college, and pick up some basic hardware and networking classes. I started there, and then moved on to work in the field, picking up a lot of on the job training and knowledge. I couldn't have gotten anywhere, however, without the basics.
