first off...
I'm running RedHat 5.2  linux 2.0.36.
Sendmail version 8.8.7
Apache 1.3.3
python 1.5.1
sed 3.02
perl 5.005_02


here is the problem I get.

when going to http://servername.com/lists/admin/testing

I get the following error...

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. 
Please contact the server administrator, webmaster at servername.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. 
Premature end of script headers: /home/mailman/cgi-bin/admin

when running perl ./admin from the /home/mailman/cgi-bin directory.. I get the following...

4:44pm root at servername [/home/mailman/cgi-bin]# perl ./admin
Unrecognized character \177 at ./admin line 1.

now.. I've run into similar problems before.. but they were usually caused by script
being written in notepad by my users and then expected to work properly under unix.
it's usually fixed by converting the script text format from dos to unix.
however, since this looks like compiled perl, I can't very well do that :)

thanks in advance for your time.
