[Mailman-Users] having trouble with using Mailman

Hit there-

I am running RHL 7.2 with a PIII-500 and 78mb Ram.
When I type "python" at the prompt - I get the following version output:

         Python 1.5.2 (#1, Jul 5 2001, 03:02:19) [GCC 2.96 20000731 (Red 
Hat Linux 7.1 2 on linux-i386

My install went OK. When I got to the /check_perms I had to use the -f but 
after that I did get a "no problems" message.
I am having trouble setting up the lists. I believe that the mail is being 
refused. Here is my scenario----

I setup the "test" list as described in the documentation - but never 
received an email notifying me how to access the list.
I am also trying to figure out how to setup the httpd.conf to allow access 
to the server via the web. I have added the following
to my httpd.conf file for use of Mailman:
         ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/home/mailman/cgi-bin/"
         Alias /pipermail/ "/home/mailman/archives/public/"
         ServerAdmin mailman-owner at datatechie.com
         DocumentRoot /home/mailman/
         ServerName mailman.datatechie.com
         ErrorLog mailman-error_log
         TransferLog mailman-access_log
         ServerSignature email
         DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm index.shtml
         LogLevel warn
         HostNameLookups off

I am checking the FAQs and is says to check the crontab and I don't see any 
entries in /etc/crontab for Mailman. I have even run the command crontab 
crontab.in form /$prefix/cron again to test it an there are still noe 
entries in /etc/crontab. Am I doing something wrong?

Then the FAQs said to check the logs and that the aliases are setup 
correctly. The FAQ says that the aliases should be in
~mailman/data/aliases - which I can't even find. and the logs show the 
following error:

         Apr 06 19:20:01 2002 (6320) All recipients refused: (111, 
'Connection refused')
         Apr 06 19:20:01 2002 (6320) smtp for 1 recips, completed in 0.077 

         Apr 06 18:20:01 2002 (5286) error opening list: test
         Apr 06 18:20:01 2002 (5286) Dequeuing message destined for missing 
list:        /home/mailman/qfiles/8d2ce85b7808e4b734c5057735454ab625fbcfce

         Apr 06 19:24:00 2002 (6388) -1 dene at ulmschneiders.com (ignore)

Anyone know how I can fix this?

Also- isn't there "home page" for admin via the web? I have not found an 
"index.htm" anywhere in the Mailman folders.
Where do I point the httpd.conf to for the DocumentRoot?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Dene.
