Hmm good question. I have a similar set up to you so making the domain
on its own return the listinfo page is a good idea. I did this with
Apache to make it work just now (in the lists.mydomain.com VirtualHost
section of httpd.conf):

RedirectMatch ^/$ http://lists.mydomain.com/listinfo/

This redirects all requests for /. Not sure if this is the "proper" way to
do it, as this sends an HTTP "Page moved temporarily" result to the
browser along with the redirection. It seems to work.
