And if the needs are small, one might be able to get away with just  
running leafnode.  Leafnode is *not* a full NNTP server, but for small  
networks with limited needs, it might be sufficient.

I'm not familiar at all with Typhoon and Diablo.  The last time I used  
DNews (a very very long time ago) it had some really nice design  
features that made it appropriate for situations between what one  
would use leafnode and INN, but it was buggy (this was a long time  
ago, those bugs have probably been fixed).  INN, of course, is the  
sendmail, of Usenet servers.
