Okay - I kept pounding at it, and somehow now it works (this is after a
full afternoon and two reinstalls) with Apache. Now to see about taking
care of the Postfix problem - even with the solution mentioned in the
install instructions, I'm still getting: 
			The Postfix program

<test-request at taz.shultzinfosystems.com>: Command died with status 2:
    "/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test". Command output: Failure
to exec
    script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 99.  (Reconfigure to take 99?)

12 is the gid for "mail" (I configured --with-mail-gid=12) and 99 is
"nobody" (--with-cgi-gid=99). 

Guess I'll see if I got that alias file set up properly.
