How about a picture of a branch wirth several leaves on it, rather
than just one leaf?

Regarding the web pages I have two comments. 

(1)  on the FAQ page you use html like this:

   <FONT FACE="courier" SIZE="+1">
       &nbsp; &nbsp; kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslog.pid`

On my system (Netscape 4.6 under linux) this appears in Helvetica
which doesn't look very nice. I suggest you use:

      kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslog.pid`  

instead. If you want to specify a font, you could use CSS.

(2) On the main page (index.html) you have underlined some of the
headings, eg:

   <LI><u>Leafnode</u> is the NNTP server.  It talks to the normal news
   and stores readership data.

I suggest you don't do this; the normal convention for HTML is that
underlining means it's a hyperlink.

Overall I think the web pages are a good, clean design. I like the
subtle shades of grey/cream used. It'll look even better with a 
leafnode logo in the top left.
