[Mailman-Users] Newbie needs help

Hi all,

      I am a newbie self taught Linux user, so this is probably 
embarrassingly simple.  I have installed Mailman, run check_perms
and fixed the errors from that, and my test list sends to me.  However, the 
web pages and e-mail sent to the list both return messages (below).  I 
think part or all of my problem is setting the server so Mailman is allowed 
to run CGI scripts.  I have no idea where to set this permission, and am 
unsure of what to write to the appropriate file.  I am running Redhat 7.1 
and Ensim.
Thanks in advance, Paul
