The variable `gnus-select-method' is part of the `gnus-server'
customization group, which you can get to by typing:

    M-x customize-group RET gnus-server RET

`RET' means to hit enter/return.

In your case, you just need to change the "Address:" value to the
address of your NNTP server (which I believe you said is
news.usenet.net).

Doing the above will be equivalent to putting this form in your init
file (i.e. the first step in the instructions I provided in response to
your earlier question about this):

    (setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "news.usenet.net"))

You will still want to create an ~/.authinfo file so that Gnus has your
credentials.

Hope that helps
