I've just finished setting up mailman on a RaQ3 (which is basically a
redhat box with a normal amd processor not a mips chip).

The cgi-wrappers were a problem, and as far as I can tell there is no
way to get mailman to work with them. I just disabled the wrapper in
httpd.conf for a single virtual host and set mailman up as normal (this
seems to work even though httpd.conf is updated automatically by the
web-interface and you lose your warranty by doing anything as root).

Other stuff:

- I had to upgrade python for mailman-2.0beta2

- The sendmail wrappers need to be sym-linked in /usr/adm/sm.bin/ 

- The RaQ3 comes with majordomo pre-installed - you might want to use
  that instead.

- Only get a cobalt box if you really like all that web-admin stuff.
