What is needed in order to run nntp? How does nntp connect to other news 
servers? Where do you define the news groups that the server would subscribe to?
Any pointers or suggested configuration?

Or better yet, "nntp".

I think cnews is still the standard server software, but there are a
bunch of alternatives that might be easier for a small installation.
