I started small.  Anytime the company wanted to upgrade a windows server
that is not integrated into Active Directory I tried to replace it with
a Linux box.  Now all of our perimeter servers run Linux. (DNS, Mailing
list, SMTP gateway, etc.)  Once the company saw how well they worked
I've been able to move a few internal servers as well.

The main thing is to make sure Linux fits the roll and integrates
seamlessly.  If your boss is worried about Linux, the last thing you
need is the first server to cause problems.
