I never tried to connect manually.  The server responded to a ping and Netscape was able to reach the news server directly... so I didn't think of it.

It doesn't seem that it even TRIES to make a connection... it instantly reports "failed to connect to server" or something to that effect.  Then when I cat the /var/log/messages it says that it couldn't create a lockfile.  What lockfile is it talking about and where would it put it??  Maybe there is a directory missing or something?

I think I'm going to download the source to the newest leafnode release and compile it tonight... my last compile attempt failed with a sed syntax error so I found the 1.9.2 rpm package.
