Well, one way you could do it is like this...
go into /etc/apache/access.conf or wherever it is on your system and
then add this:
<Directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman>
DirectoryIndex listinfo.cgi

Maybe that isn't the best way.  If someone knows something better please
say so.  I guess another thing you could do is make DirectoryIndex
something like index.cgi and have a symbolic link.

Oh and I'm not too sure if that should be /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman or
