Linux as a career

I am a Linux newbie (SUSE) and find it fascinating. I am thinking that
it's something that I'd like to do for a living. I am currently in
outside sales, but have always been fascinated by technology. I am
just wondering what you would recommend in terms of what path to
follow to attain my goal. In other words, which linux certifications
would be most valuable to me in helping me to get my first job? Which
one(s) would allows me to get my foot in the door so that I could gain
experience? Obviously one could argue that certs are not as valuable
as real world experience, but you've got to get that first job in
order to get experience. In terms of Linux certs, what are the
sequential steps? e.g, with Cisco, you have the ccna, then the ccnp,
etc, etc. What are the sequential steps for Linux certs?
Also, I really like the Suse flavor, but would I be better off
learning and working with Redhat simply because it is more widely used
than is Suse?
Any feedback from anyone who works with Linux as an IT professional
would be much appreciated.
