I am an new user, installed Mailman on a Debian server running Exim. I have
finally figured out how to get the proper urls working and being able to get
to the various webpages supplied for list and admins, but when I try to
subscribe a test user from the web interface, I get the following error

Now, from reading the troubleshooting list at
http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/install-faq.html, I get that Mailman is
looking for a different gid, but this is Debian and I can't configure
anything when it installs a program. How do I change this so that it will
work? BTW, I can subscribe the address from the admin page, but not from the
general subscription page.
