When GNUS Starts Up

   At startup, GNUS reads your `.newsrc' news initialization file and
attempts to communicate with the local news server, which is a
repository of news articles.  The news server need not be the same
computer you are logged in on.

   If you start GNUS and connect to the server, but do not see any
newsgroups listed in the Newsgroup buffer, type `L' to get a listing of
all the newsgroups.  Then type `u' to unsubscribe from particular
newsgroups.  (Move the cursor using `n' and `p' or the usual Emacs

   When you quit GNUS with `q', it automatically records in your
`.newsrc' initialization file the subscribed or unsubscribed status of
all newsgroups, except for groups you have "killed".  (You do not need
to edit this file yourself, but you may.)  When new newsgroups come
into existence, GNUS adds them automatically.
