Thanks for that Dave,

I've checked all the permissions look fine.
All the files are owned by either root:root or root:mailman. Is that right?

Also, I forgot to mention in my OP that when I first installed everything, 
listinfo (or something) ran but I got an error message telling me that the 
uid and gid that the cgi was running didn't match the uid/gid in the config 

To fix this, I added a 'user' and a 'group' clause to my vhost section. Was 
that the right thing to do?
