Linux has so many tools, settings, parameters, and configuration files to learn that administering your box can be a challenge.

You need to rise to that challenge. If you can't, then don't administer a server. Some people will disagree with this statement, but tough. The internet is full of people who want to take the easy way in administering a server and do not fully understand the concepts. You know where this leaves us? A world chock full of protocol violations, spammers, compromises and unreliability. You don't have to learn EVERYTHING to be a good admin, just some basics.
