[Mailman-Users] mailman and postfix

I am trying to set up Mailman 2.0beta2 on a Redhat 6.1 server using Postfix 
19991231 pl07.  I also have python 1.5.2-7 installed.  I haven't succeeded 
in getting everything to work together.  I can send and receive mail using 
postfix but I can't seem to get mailman to send auto responses when I create 
a newlist.  (I have also copied the aliases into the file 
/home/mailman/aliases and run newaliases.)  In fact, the only way that I can 
get mailman to accept mail (without giving the failure to execute script 
error) is to compile mailman --with-mail-gid=99.  But I still do not receive 
any subscription info from mailman.

Postfix's gid is 505 and Mailman is 501, when I compile mailman with either 
of those, it gives the error to try re-compiling with 99...  Have I totally 
missed something in the setup steps??  Are there permissions set wrong?

If anyone's got experience or ideas on fixing my setup, I would love to hear 
from you.  Thanks
