OK, I am learning slowly but surly...

I resolved my sendmail problems, (added lists.first5venttura.org to 
/etc/mail/access local-host-names and relay-domains)

Now I can "talk" to mailman...

however this is what I get back from mailman.  I guess I messed up 
the configuration, but even though this message from mailmain 
probably looks very clear to you guys, I am lost...

do I need to re-install mailman from scratch with --with-mail-gid=mail ?

what about the other configuration changes I made? will I have to re 
do all of them?

Group mismatch error.  Mailman expected the mail

the system's mail server executed the mail script as
group "mail".  Try tweaking the mail server to run the
script as group "mailman", or re-run configure,
providing the command line option `--with-mail-gid=mail'.
