11.Run fetchnews.  The first run will take some time since
fetchnews reads a list of all newsgroups from your upstream
server.  With an 28.8 modem, it can take as long as 60 minutes
(depending on how many newsgroups your provider offers). To see
fetchnews working, run it with -vvv.  If you update leafnode from
a version previous to 1.6, the format of the groupinfo file has
changed. You should therefore run fetchnews with the parameter

12.Read news using an NNTP client (with $NNTPSERVER or
/etc/nntpserver pointing to your own host). Select the groups you
want to read in the future. You will find them empty except a
default article.  Reading this article is necessary with some
newsreaders to select the groups for further fetching.

   After this, you should have empty files in
/var/spool/news/interesting.groups/ for every group you want to

13.Run fetchnews again. This run should pick up all the groups
you want to read.

Please detail what you did and what exactly did not work as you
expected it from the above description. currently your problem
descriptions are rather worthless.
