This is what you need to setup permission like for registered usergroup they can't view any other forum other than introduction forum and setup a usergroup promotion so that when user post in introduction forums his usergroup get upgraded so that he can view of write messages in other forums. In usergroup promotion you will find criteria , just setup that user criteria for user to be added to another usergroup. Also it's not necessary to hide the other forums from registered usergroup you can simply not allow them to post in that forums .
