2. If You Are Impatient
     If you don't want to follow these directions, do the following:

     cd $inn/config
     cp config.dist config.data
     chmod 644 config.data
     vi config.data (or emacs, or whatever)
     cd ..
     make world
     mkdir -p /usr/news /var/news /var/news/spool
     make install

Then go read the appendixes.  If you have any problems, read the rest of
this document.
