I guess I should of made my problem a little "clearer".  I have ran
Mailman successfully in the past, when I say it hangs at the point where I
am "to hit enter to send list info to admin."  

I mean, I can hit "enter" "k" "s" "any-key" and it just sits there, as if
it is trying to send the message but can't for some reason, it just sits
theer till I CTRL-D or CTRL-C to kill it.
