Then start reading

Then start reading. Microsoft's Knowledge Base, or the MSKB, is a good place to start. Every patch that is released has a "kbxxxx" appended to the name, and that corresponds to some MSKB article detailing that particular patch. It's truly exciting stuff that'll have you on the edge of your seat, biting your nails in suspense.

Of course service packs have nothing to do with virus definitions, so consider that lesson #1.

In general though, it's as Bob says. Most of the good techs start by doing, and making mistakes along the way. Learning from those mistakes is key. You might want to buy an older system off craigslist or ebay, and just abuse the hell out of it. Try anything and everything with the software, and even the hardware. It's not your main system, so TRY to break things, and then try to fix them.
