I've looked through a couple of months of the mailman-users archive and the 
FAQ.  That said I feel safe asking this...

I added 
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
to my Apache httpd.conf.  After that I was getting things like this in my 
[Tue Feb  4 23:26:02 2003] [error] [client] Symbolic link not 
allowed: /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/ikid-help/
I decided to add
<Location /pipermail>
  Options FollowSymLinks
directly after the Alias statement above.  For the life of me I can't figure 
out what I'm missing.  I've restarted apache over and over and nothing 
changes.  I turned on indexes for a minute in the <Location> statement so I 
know I'm hitting the right directory, but FollowSymLinks just isn't doing 
what I think it should.  Is there something else in my httpd.conf I'm 
missing?  I'm no Apach expert so it's quite possible there's something else 
I've missed.
