inews rejects my posting

I am running Cnews on my UNIXPC 7300.  My /usr/lib/news/active file contains
lines for unix-pc.general and comp.sys.3b1.  When I am reading the news
I can read all of the articles in both of these groups.  When I try to
run postnews and specify either of these groups, I get the following message:

inews: comp.sys.3b1 matches no groups in /usr/lib/news/active
inews: article in /u/cjp/dead.article

What could I be doing wrong?  

I am posting this message on the computer that forwards the news to me.

Thanks for any replies.  --cjp at
