When I've had problems I haven't run makedbz and haven't needed to - 
the hash files have rebuilt themselves automatically with makehistory,
but maybe that's my config somehow using tradspool.  After the last
upgrade I've had to do something like the following:

% makehistory -O
% find /news -print0 | xargs -0 chown
  # or equivalent with appropriate news spool/overview path/s

Presumably you've set up the minimum config files in /var/news/etc
  storage.conf    # must change or nearly everything will barf
  readers.conf    # change if you want to read news
  inn.conf        # basic customisations

What sort of news system are you looking to set up?
