I get the new install error,  Arrg.   Looking at the archives, my
cgi-bin directory looks good.  I wondering about the configuration of
apache.  I'm running RH 5.2 Sparc linux.

I added this to my srm.conf file:

# Note that if you include a trailing / on fakename then the server will

# require it to be present in the URL.  So "/icons" isn't aliased in
# example.

Alias /icons/ /home/httpd/icons/
Alias /pipermail/ /home/mailman/archives/public/

# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# Format: ScriptAlias fakename realname

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/httpd/cgi-bin/
ScriptAlias /mailman/ /home/mailman/cgi-bin/

Is that the only modifications needed to the apache configuration.  I
didn't touch httpd.conf or access.conf
I restarted apache with:
/usr/sbin/httpd stop

Could someone also expound on the following in the REAME file.  I'm not
sure how to configure for symbolic links:  But this is for archives ...

 Consult your Web server's documentation for details.  Also be
      sure to configure your Web server to follow symbolic links in
      this directory, otherwise public Pipermail archives won't be

Thanks for any and all help.
