I am using Redhat Linux release 5.2 and when I try to access the server, I get NEWS(NNTP) ERROR OCCURRED, YOU HAVE NO PERMISSION TO TALK.

that means you dont have the access files set up right, and since you do not say which nntp server you are using, we won't be able to tell you what to do.

Since you are new, I'm going to assume that you are using what came with your linux which is probably INN.  If this is the case, check out the permission file in:

/etc/news/nnrp.access

This controls who can read a post to your system.  I suspect that you have not put your IP address or hostname in here.
