Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I received a human reply info, here's wt the email said
Hi, you should be good to post now.
I was able to log in and post.
Here is how it goes:
1. You register in the forum
2. You get an automated email telling you to send them and email to let them know you are a real person. and you get an activation link too.
3. You wait.....
4. You get a reply for your email telling you that you are good to go..
5. You are good to go!
As I registered, I received an automated email to confirm my registration as you mentioned but, for myself, the procedure failed by returning an error code indicating that some required fields are missing.
Both link and return code methods present in this email failed same way.
Well, waiting more successfully moment with DSL board, I'll concentrate my forum activity dedicated to DSL to the present LinuxQuestions.org forum.
I'm a total Linux noob who was advised to try DSL because my hardware's so old.
I did a frugal install of DSL on a 10 year old notebook and, as a noob, have got some stuff working.
I have the aforementioned problem with registering/posting at the DSL forum. My registration attempts errored out, but I can log in. I can't post. I've sent 2 emails to firstname.lastname@example.org but haven't received a reply. It's only been 1 week for me.
Perusing the DSL forum, I see that there's some sort of personal split between a couple of the principal figures in DSL. I'm not going to take sides--I'm too new and haven't read much about the history of the disagreement.
I took a quick peek at the Tinycore web site and see that it's apparently Robert Shingledecker's baby.
I only want to say I'd also like to hear from John about the state of DSL, dead or merely in ICU. Everyone's voice should be heard when there are disagreements.
Please read this post by noprob (thanks noprob!) it may shed some light on why some of you are still waiting to be approved for the DSL forums.
Very useful link noprobs, thanks. Now I know I am wasting my time with DSL. Now I will look for some other distro that may make my ancient P1 notebook into a useful web browser! I guess the starting point would be to try TinyCore out.
