Reading news offline

I have a dial-up connection to my ISP.

I want to be able to read the usergroups offline.  I have downloaded suck, inn and inews and also trn.  After I have read their documentation and also the News-HOWTO, I still do not know how to do it.

I can read news with trn and gnus, but only while I am connected to the ISP.
I tried out suck.  It made contact with the ISP's NNTP-server and did nothing further but complaining about not finding a history-file.  When I use the -H (or is -h) option it stopped complaining but still did nothing.

How can I download the newsgroups I want to subscribe and read them on my own system in my own time?  It was a straight forward thing when I used Windows (even without reading a single bit of documentation).  After a few hours of reading and experimenting in Linux, I had no success and I do not even know which road to travel.

Thank you for your patience in the past.  I trust you will be patient with me this time also.

Johann Spies.
