You launch emacs;
you type: M-x customize-variable RET gnus-select-method RET
you select nntp in the "Value Menu";
you type the domain name of your nntp server in the address field.
you select "Set for the current session" and then "Save for future
sessions" in the State menu.

and finally you launch gnus with M-x gnus RET

gnus can be used to read and write your email too.  Personnaly, I
