The listinfo page is totally customizable. There are two general ways:
edit the template, and punt the template.

To edit the template, you can use the "Edit the HTML for the public list
pages" option in your admin screen. Alternatively, you can directly edit
the "listinfo.html" template in your $prefix/lists/$listname directory.

The other thing is to write up your own page and have the <FORM> in
there post to the appropirate Mailman URL. A buddy of mine has
subscription pages running on a completely different site. People fill
in the form and it does a POST to the machine that runs Mailman.
