installing new knobs

Does anyone know a simple way for a novice to install new and slightly larger doorknobs on interior doors?

You should be able to put new knobs on the squared threaded rod that fits through the existing lock mechanism.
Some door knobs have a set screw, and others work with a spring-loaded wire that you push in with a small flathead screwdriver.
Good Luck!

No matter what the knob size, the spindle that holds the door knobs togther through the door is the same size as from over 100 years ago.
