Here a shell script template I use to select the download order:

[09:24:29]thor:~# cat Order.sh 
echo "change the news groups download order"
echo ""
echo "type ls -U /var/spool/news/interesting.groups to check the download

cd /var/spool/news

mv -f SAVE/* interesting.groups/
mv  interesting.groups/* SAVE/

mv SAVE/f* interesting.groups/
mv SAVE/c* interesting.groups/
mv SAVE/n* interesting.groups/
mv SAVE/l* interesting.groups/
mv SAVE/h* interesting.groups/
mv SAVE/*  interesting.groups/

You have to create an extra directory, here /var/spool/news/SAVE
You can also use this directory to store groups you don't want to download
just before running fetchnews.
