I think you have the same problem as another fellow in news.software.nntp.
I wonder if Red Hat installs INN with the wrong permissions.

Either:

    chown news:news rnews
    chmod 750 rnews

(wherever rnews may be found on your installation), or:

    chmod 775 /var/spool/news/incoming

should fix the problem.
