Here's what I did,
copy souper95.com c:\windows\command
(maybe souper95.exe c:\windows\command\souper.exe ?)
created two files newsrc (list of groups I wanted) kill (the souper kill
file) in c:\home
install yarn as per instructions. Use adduser to set home as my home dir.
connect via DUN to my newserver
open a MS-DOS command prompt
entered the following commands:
souper -N c:\home\newsrc -K c:\home\kill -k0 pop3.mail.server name password
Once it works might want to add the set NNTPSERVER to your autoexec.bat
or create a batch file containing these commands with a desktop shotcut
pointing to it. Also might need to fiddle with the msdos properties to
get something you like.

No, not blind. However, the command line switches are the same.
