Which program is called by telnetting to port 119 depends on the entry in
/etc/inetd.conf. You can either choose to change the entry or copy the
executables to the places indicated in /etc/inetd.conf. From what I have
heard from SuSE, I would recommend the latter method because YaST sometimes
seems to overwrite configuration files.

The makefile copies the executables to /usr/local/sbin/. If your old
executables reside in /usr/local/leafnode, you can copy the files from
/usr/local/sbin there.

There is no easy way to find out whether your executable is 1.9.2 or
1.9.3 because Leafnode programs don't have a -v switch, but you can
start an nntpd by hand and will be greeted by the familiar stuff that
you posted above. Type "quit" to end the program.
