Is this for an internal or private newsgroup or do you want a cacheing newsserver that carrys regular groups like comp.os.linux?

You start by choosing some news server software e.g. leafnode, read the documentation, configure it then make sure it is either not accessible from the internet or requires a password to access.
If you leave a newsserver open to the internet on port 119 it will soon be filled with spam.
