Mailman's web GUI is generated by the scripts in /home/mailman/cgi-bin so 
the Apache server you want to deliver the GUI pages must be able to access 
and execute the scripts. When executed, these scripts must also have access 
to Mailman directory structure to access the data files therein.

If your web server runs on a different machine to Mailman then you must use 
NFS (or some such transparent file sharing scheme) to provide the 
appropriate access. This is briefly touched on in section "4. Final system 
set-up" of the INSTALL file in the Mailman build directory.
