I'm using Red Hat 7.2 and it has all three items (/etc/xinetd.d, a 
proper includedir statement in /etc/xinetd.conf, and /etc/cron.daily).  

I can't speak to any Red Hat RPMs, as I installed leafnode-2.0b8_ma9
from source last May without much difficulty (I did have to also 
install pcre-3.9).  I configured fetchnews to run every 15 
minutes from cron.

Both fetchnews and leafnode have run beautifully for nearly a 
year now.  I'm a very heppy user.  Thanks!
