[Mailman-Users] Install Problem

I've just finished installing Mailman, and I am sure I followed instructions
to a 'T'.  I've reached the point where I created the first list, 'test' and
all seemed fine.  I received my email, and this is where things seem to go
strange for me.

The email asks me to go to http://lists.pairowoodies.com/admin/test or to

The problem is, neither of the admin or listinfo directories exist.  Perhaps
this is an Apache problem - I'm not really all that familiar with Apache,
but as a test, I did set up an index.html file in /home/mailman, and loaded
the file fine, so I know at least that part is correct.  Admittedly though,
I am not completely sure I did the Apache conf file properly:

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName lists.pairowoodies.com
Alias /pipermail/ /home/mailman/archives/public
ScriptAlias /mailman /home/mailman/cgi-bin

Is this correct?

The other thing I find odd is that there are no files in the cgi-bin
directory.  Shouldn't the install have put something in there?

I am running Linux Redhat 6.2, Sendmail, Python 2.0
