[Mailman-Users] cgi user

Hello all,

At this point, I am using the default install of Mailman that came with
RedHat 9 and have updated the rpms to the latest RedHat release. However, I
have always ran apache as another user other than the default apache. So
naturally, when I try to go to the initial default mailman list that I set
up while doing the initial setup and config of Mailman, I get the error :

Group mismatch error. Mailman expected the CGI wrapper script to be
executed as one of the following groups:
but the system's web server executed the CGI script as group: "webadmin".
Try tweaking the web server to run the script as one of these groups:
or re-run configure providing the command line option:

So my question is, other than re-installing Mailman from source, is there a
way to:

A: change a config option in the current installation to allow this to
execute cgi as user webadmin or

B: re-install from RPM using an install option --with-cgi-gid=webadmin

Any help would be appreciated.
