Ok, this is a good goal to aim at for me. My background is not system 
administration (it's mathematics and teaching) but my knowledge level is 
roughly at the Junior LPI level. I looked at the sample questions and I 
got about 73% right. So getting a Junior cert should require only a 
reasonable amount of study.

What score do I need to pass an exam?
What's the title of someone with the Ubuntu cert? "Junior Ubuntu Admin"?

Ok, I'll keep an eye on this list.

Yes, I got that. I'm roughly at the Junior sys-admin level right now. I 
used to know more, but I haven't really fiddled much in a while.

Gotcha :)  Btw, I don't know how to debug sources.list. It never seems 
to break really...  I once had problems, but they were fixed by just 
pointing to a different server.
