>  QUESTION: How does one set up the Web interface to mailman???

These are scripts, Jim.  If you run them through Apache, the url
/mailman/listinfo/<list> runs a script called listinfo in the cgi-bin 
directory, with the argument <list>.  

In Apache, you need a line in your httpd.conf file that sets a scriptalias
to that cgi-bin directory, essentially like so:

   ScriptAlias /mailman/ /home/mailman/cgi-bin/
   Alias /pipermail/ /home/mailman.cgi/archives/public/

These two directives are in fact in the installation instructions if you
follow them to the letter.  After you make these entries, you need to send
Apache a SIGHUP (kill - SIGHUP httpd's pid running as root) or on newer
Apache installations, "/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl restart".  That tells
it to reread its configuration files.

Good luck!
