Whats the price/time committments for these two certifications?  Are the
testing fees included, whats the total cost?

I also heard the SAGE certs are quite relevant, from a system
administrator standpoint... are these more/less popular? standardized? 

I would also like to get some kind of GNU/Linux certification, but they do
cost $$ and time - which I'm usually short on both (except maybe over the
summer?)  I heard there's the Linux+ and Security+ now from comptia ...
though I'm not really in favor of them currently since they a big
proponent of the "software choice" compaign versus of the "sincere choice"
one.  Also I believe IBM is looking for certifications, LPI, Linux+ or

I need something to make me look smart on my resume. =)
