I am currently working as a systems administrator on Windows. My friend suggested I think about becoming a DBA.

I've got a white paper titled "Grow that DBA career" on my Web site, which discusses what a DBA does and some tips on how to get a job.
Being a DBA is different than being a sys admin. Many of the skills are the same, but a DBA needs many other skills, like application development.
