I'm not sure this is the right way to do it but it works fine here :)

<VirtualHost x.x.x.x>
    ServerName lists.mydomain.com
    Redirect /index.html http://lists.mydomain.com/mailman/listinfo
    DocumentRoot /home/mailman/
    ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/home/mailman/cgi-bin/"
    Alias /pipermail/ "/home/mailman/archives/public/"
    ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/lists-error.log
    TransferLog /var/log/httpd/lists-access.log
