You need `nntp-marks-is-evil' instead of `nnfolder-marks-is-evil' as
described in the list of new features:

,----[ (info "(gnus)No Gnus") / GNUS-NEWS ]
| New features in No Gnus:
| [...]
|    * Changes in back ends
|         * The nntp back end stores article marks in `~/News/marks'.
|           The directory can be changed using the (customizable) variable
|           `nntp-marks-directory', and marks can be disabled using the
|           (back end) variable `nntp-marks-is-evil'.  The advantage of
|           this is that you can copy `~/News/marks' (using rsync, scp or
|           whatever) to another Gnus installation, and it will realize
|           what articles you have read and marked.  The data in
|           `~/News/marks' has priority over the same data in
|           `~/.newsrc.eld'.

BTW, as a new Gnus user you'd better use a release version instead of
(outdated) development code:

> [ emacs 21.4.1 / No Gnus V0.4 ]

,----[ (info "(gnus)Gnus Versions") ]
|    If you happen upon a version of Gnus that has a prefixed name -
| "(ding) Gnus", "September Gnus", "Red Gnus", "Quassia Gnus",
| "Pterodactyl Gnus", "Oort Gnus", "No Gnus" - don't panic.  Don't let it
| know that you're frightened.  Back away.  Slowly.  Whatever you do,
| don't run.  Walk away, calmly, until you're out of its reach.  Find a
| proper released version of Gnus and snuggle up to that instead.

Bye, Reiner.
