thanks for replying, jeremy. i'm afraid i'm still in the
dark. here's what it says in that section, and what i did:

  - If you plan on running your MTA and web server on
    different machines,

nope; it's all on the same machine

  - Configure your web server to give $prefix/cgi-bin
  permission to run CGI scripts.  

done. here's what i added to my httpd.conf file:

  ScriptAlias /mailman/ /home/mailman/cgi-bin/
  <Directory "/home/mailman/cgi-bin/">
      AllowOverride None
      Options ExecCGI
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all


    - You want to be very sure that the user id under which
      your CGI scripts run is *not* in the `mailman' group you
      created above, otherwise private archives will be 
      accessible to anyone.

i haven't dealt with this yet.


  - Copy the Mailman, Python, and GNU logos to a location accessible

i haven't dealt with this yet either. right now i'm not
concerned about logos.


  - Configure your web server to point to the Pipermail public


  Alias /pipermail/ /home/mailman/archives/public/

finally i restart my httpd and yet i still have that same
error described below.

should mailman create a webpage for my list? if so, where?
if i could know this i could point my server at it.

thanks again,
