Did they give you a break down of your job responsibilities before you took
the job?  Don't take this the wrong way as I may be wrong myself but in my
experience a System Admin whether it be NOC or not does generally the
samething as an OS Admin, just a different title.  Generally what I've seen
out there is a Network Administrator will manage network related devices and
handle issues from routing, switching, sometimes firewalls & ids, proxy
servers, etc.  System admins will manage the OS, AD, NDS, LDAP, DNS, WINS,
account ID's, scripting, file/print, etc related duties.
