I have tried the xterm and to no avail. 
I have downloaded and installed Python and Apache. And now I cannot install 
this programme. I dont know what to do. If there was just some other format 
in which mailman was kept I might have more success with it.

I am not altogether sure what is to be gained from using linux. I cannot see 
any significant advantages of it over WIndows. Indeed windows is much less 
messy and has less bugs. A lot of exaggeration concerning the benefits of 
Linux. Some just seem to like doing things the hard way. Or can anybody see 
something I cannot.

It is very frustrating. I have spent hours at it. By the way that guy Cerf 
who established TCP/IP was in an interview on the tv. He must have made lots 
of money out of his discovery. Network programming is among the most 
difficult forms of programming. It really is where it is at.

If I cannot work mailman could I as an alternative use majordomo with windows 
98 2nd edition. It is free too.
