Try adding a news account where the server = news.gmane.org

Once you've added the account you can subscribe to the newsgroup.

Add it the same way you add a new mail account (I forget the exact menu 
since it's been a while since I used Outlook).

I don't know why the nntp:// link isn't working for you, it should make 
the new account automatically.
