When I did this on my RH 6.2 box I had to manually migrate the configs in
/etc/news/ to:

* manually migrate settings to the new /etc/news/ files and formats
* rebuild history and overview data
* spool was left alone, no change

I don't know for _sure_ that rebuilding the history and overview db were
required for the upgrade but regardless, because of the way I did the
upgrade it was required in my situation.
