It seems clear to me from the list that he'd like to have a news server
running that is the home site for this hierarchy (sort of like
forum.linuxworld.com).  This would require running INN or an equivalent
on belegost.  I compiled and adminned INN on a UnixWare 1.1.3 system
back in the INN 1.3-1.4 days (actually, I figured out the configuration
changes necessary to get it running and passed them back to Rich Salz),
but I haven't looked at it in a while.  As I recall it's a fairly easy
install on Linux, and so long as you're not taking a usenet feed from
anywhere else it's not terribly resource intensive.  Heck, it might even
be useful in some way for other SEUL groups.

Data Network Coordinator  more honorable, but more useful than a
