Start reading the documentation.
You will read that INN should be started by running the
script as root. The script will (among other things) run the
inndstart program. This program will create a listener socket
on the priviledged port 119, switch to the userid news, and
start the innd program.

Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are,
by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
