Starting and Stopping the System
INN is started via the shell script rc.news. This must be run as the
news user and not as root. To start INN on system boot, you therefore
want to put something like:
su - news -c /usr/local/news/bin/rc.news

(around line 1400)
Looks like it should rather be started as the news user.
