If you don't care about migrating existing articles and are willing to let
them just expire, you can change the storage assignment of the newsgroups
of interest and just let new articles be stored elsewhere.  INN deals with
one newsgroup being stored in multiple storage backends.

If you want to move the existing articles, it's harder, but there's a tool
named respool in contrib that can help.  Unfortunately you have to rebuild
history and overview after using it, though.
