    You could get a job in the IT consulting divisions of E&Y, Deloitte ERS, etc. Slavish work hours.

    I'd rather do vendor-specific hardware i.e. HP blade or VMWare/Citrix cert or Oracle DBA cert.

    You need to register your details with IDA or some govt body if I am not wrong.

    My friend is CEH already. Let me know if you want to talk to him about the certification.

    Some of my friends who are CEH certified don't find it too useful in the commercial sector. CEH doesn't teach you to be a effective hacker, it just teaches you known exploits, which in modern times are already patched to a certain extent. I think you'd benefit more with other vendor specific certifications like bro cks2k2 mentioned.

    Ironically enough I have no certs myself.

    You can continue pursuing your existing cisco, microsoft, redhat certifications such as ccie, mcse and rhce which have more value and more relevant to your existing job as system engineer. These certs will give you good pay as well if you can find the "right" company.

    Yes the IT line can be rather dry and boring after being in it for some time.
