Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm using Pan 0.14.2, but when I open it and ask to get the new headers from the groups I subscribed to, it doesn't retrieve new headers.
It still worked yesterday.
I posted something last night and that worked, because I can see it when I head to Google Groups. I just can't see it in Pan.
You know a suitable news server that is actually free?
I'm paying my ISP to be able to use Usenet, so I'm not keen on paying a second time for that service.
If the problem is indeed related to my ISP's news server, I shall complain to them.

You could have a look through http://dmoz.org/Computers/Usenet/Public_News_Servers, though my suspicion is that if you haven't changed anything else in your system, you've got plenty of disk space, and you haven't changed any permissions lately, then it's most likely due your ISP.
One last option would be to start up Pan with the --debug option, and see if anything unexpected crops up.
