Thanks Dan but why would I look to "upgrading" instructions when this really
isn't what I was doing? I literally saved my entire /home/mailman directory
(recursively of course), blasted the machine with an entirely new Linux
distribution, and copied the /home/mailman directory and it's contents back
over. I then re-installed MailMan. This wasn't really an upgrade so I
didn't think to look at the upgrade instructions for help. I will now.
