Default Moving to another newsserver

I should have asked this question a couple of hours ago.
Alas, I outsmarted myself and messed up.

Later today, I'll be moving from dial-up to cable internet, yes,I finally
yelled Uncle!

Well, Comcast no longer has a news server, so I felt that the groups that I
followed via my current ISP's news server, should now be followed at

So, I tried to be clever, and change the account to point to
news.motzarella.org. I immediately lost most of the subscriptions. Then I
fiddled a bit more and lost all the subscriptions.

I did do a backup last night, so tried restoring the drive on which I
thought the OE stuff lived. That did not do the job.
I could restore the OS drive as well, but that might modify changes I made

I'll just have to look at a backup from a few daze ago to get a list of the
subscriptions, and enter them manually.

What should I have done?
I still have another account to move to news.motzarella.org.
