What?  You read documentation?  Silly rabbit.  ;-)

It's been mentioned here a lot since RH 9 came out, but that package was put
together by monkey's on some new form of crack.  Search the archives for
bugzilla.  There's a few links to redhat's bug tracking for these issues and
a few simple fixes to get mailman started on your system.

If you want to use an RPM, you might want to check out what they have in
rawhide.  It's supposed to fix the documentation issue and other (more
critical) problems with the shipped version.  Why they haven't released an
errata to fix this is beyond me.  Mailman, as shipped with Red Hat 9 is
unusable for most people.
