You have a number of problems here....
1. The requirements to download and run Mailman are detailed
Windows XP is not capable of running Mailman without substantial
work, although a machine capable of running XP should be
convertable into a reasonable Unix box by installing
either Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD or OpenBSD
2. You will need another hosting site to run this stuff -
I hate to think how much work it would be to make this run
of an AOL based dialup.
> I DO HAVE A CONFIRMATION NUMBER IT IS 520974.
3. Thats presumably the list subscription confirmation number
The message you got the confirmation request in tells you
what you need to do with it... if you haven't gathered that
then just possibly you shouldn't be thinking of running
internet based mailing lists yourself.

Any chance you can examine your keyboard and find the largish key on the
left hand side marked caps lock. Press it once - a light either within
the key or normally placed towards the top right of your keyboard will
then go out. This makes your text *much* easier to read and you not
appear to be shouting all the time....
