If you have any specific questions, post them here.

Otherwise, you could read the FAQ:
> Mailman FAQ: http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py
> Searchable Archives: http://www.mail-archive.com/mailman-users%40python.org/

The basics are covered in the FAQ.

To create a new list:
 - Login to the server running Mailman and run the command:
 - This will ask you for the new lists name and the email 
      address of the administrator for the new list.
 - It will then print out 4 lines (and some comments) that
      you must copy into your systems /etc/aliases file 
      (or equivelent). 
 - Generally after that you run "newaliases" so that your
      MTA (mail server) recognizes the new aliases.
 - The list admin will receive a message detailing how to
      access and modify the new list. That message will 
      contain a web link to the Web Admin interface as
      well as the new lists email address.

You should create a test list and play with that. Once you have played
with the test list for awhile and played with the various configuration
settings, you will be a Mailman guru!

Good Luck
