I have no experience with the combination of nn and leafnode. The last
time I used nn was about eight years ago. You may ask on the mailing
list for leafnode, or just use your favorite newsgroup (try
news.software.readers or news.software.nn; maybe there are also
Spanish-speaking newsgroups about news software or linux).

Other console-based newsreaders that are often used are "gnus" (a
macro package for emacs) and "slrn". Both work fine together with
