I think it is not DFSG-compliant, because of this:

     * Any translation or derivative work of Linux Installation and
       Getting Started must be approved by the author in writing before

The funny thing is that later, it says "All source code in Linux
Installation and Getting Started is placed under the GNU General Public
License", which is incompatible with the fact that derivative works
must be approved by the author. The GPL does not require this.
