The problem that I am having is that when I a user select to see the
archive when the archives are public then get the error that the page
cannot be found... Hence the reason why I believe that the file that is
missing is in the /home/mailman/CGI-BIN dir ... There is a private file
there but not a public...
Can someone please check the /home/mailman/cgi-bin directory and tell me if
there is a "public" file, atleast I will know if I am on the right track....

>/home/mailman/archive/public gets made in the first place by "make install".
