Well, first off, where do you feel stuck? What kind of system do you have, 
and how are you thinking of installing it? I'm willing to help, but you need 
to start somewhere.

The truth is, you do need a fair bit of basic understanding of Unix commands 
and OS structure, how your mailer program works (sendmail/exim/postfix), how 
e-mail in general works, as well as some knowledge of Apache, too. Without 
this basic knowledge, installing and setting up Mailman might well be 
impossible. I'd suggest if you don't have this knowledge, find someone local 
who does, who can install it for you.
