Anyone know of a good newsgroup program?

Hey all,

I'm looking for a newsreader program for linux. The only one I have experience with so far is XNews on windows, and I'm just looking for something with a simple interface that I can use to download...

For a USENET news reader app I like Thunderbird, for both mail and news.

It would help forum memebrs know what Distribution your running buy you editing it in your profile. under your user name ppl would be able to see it, like if you look at mys.
if you have Mandrake 9.2 theres Pan, under the Networking - News menu - Pan
If not, install it off the cd.

Thanks folks, going to give Pan a try...

Multi-User - I'm running Suse 9.0... I used to have my distro on my profile but I have switched so many times I was sick of changing it. Should have mentioned it in the original post.
