Hello and welcome to the forums!
When I run the command required, I get the following output:
- 05-05-2011 #3
date -u is piped is uname, which without parameters returns Linux.
%W is weeks, so you'd get something like 19Linux which is passed to sha256sum. If you can you can install Cygwin, which will let you use certain tools like sha256sum and sed.
Then, instead of typing the command as seen on the registration, type:
date -u +%W$(echo Linux)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'
