I think my problem may be my not having other software to grab the news 
from an upstream news server.  I'll take a look at newsx.  The 
configuration is long for sure, but I've been through it so many times 
in the past few days that I think I'm getting better at it. :-)

I'll report my success/failures as soon as I can get back on it.
