Years. This is the the most prominant Security Certifier ---ICS squared--- International Information Systems Security Certifications Consortium (iisscc)

You need far more than M$ knowledge, you need programing skill, and years of computer experience, let alone training. You need to fimilar with other OS's as well
 It's still a young field, so you have the time, and this would be a great time to start.

As far as M$ security certs...

There are probably boot camp's in your area for M$ security... http://www.globalnettraining.com/mcsebootcamp1.asp  (as an example)

hacking is very ethical. Cracking, subversion, and other dishonorable act's aren't ethical. hacking is an over used term, and is thought of in the "phreaking" sense it was first associated with. A hack is a quick and dirty solution to a problem, not the best way to do something, but get's it done- can be thought of as "gerry-rigging" In the computer world a "hack" has a few different interprutations... hacking in the sense I think of is a book like "wireless hacks" http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/wirelesshks/
Not a book about how to break into wireless networks, but nice and easy guide to help you implement tools and programs for you wireless lan.

http://www.telephonetribute.com/phonephreaking.html back in the day, this is where the word "hacker" started... very good reading on that site.

When you are hired to "hack" a network it's understood that you are going to try to break into things. crack passwords etc... When you have written permission, it's ethical ;)
