       This  document  discusses  how  to  install  and  set   up
       InterNetNews.   You  should  be  familiar  with Usenet and
       networks;  the   first   section   gives   references   to
       documentation  for  these  topics,  and  the last appendix
       gives a Usenet overview for novices.

     This document also describes what many of the programs do  and  how
they  should  be used.  Even if you are a world-class expert at building
and maintaining public software, you should probably read this.

     This is revision 1.19, dated 1996/11/10.
