You need to read the INSTALL file; it has very detailed instructions on 
how to configure INN.  As the FAQ points out, there's not very much 
different for doing local-only:

> Innd came with redhat: version inn-2.3.2-5

This is an outdated version of INN.  Before you spend the time to get it 
setup, please remove the RPM and install at *least* a more recent 2.3.x 
(and 2.4.x would be better).
