I'm not sure what exactly I did, except meticulously go through 
Kathleen's instructions ONE MORE TIME!

One hint:  if you get as far as successfully creating the 'test' list 
but can't connect to the web portion try two things:

1) make sure you have " " around the your ScriptAlias statements in 

Kathleen has:  ScriptAlias /mailman/ /Applications/mailman/cgi-bin/
Should be   :  ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/Applications/mailman/cgi-bin/"

2) make sure you stop/start Apache in the Sharing System Pref -- so 
simple, yet so deadly!

I want to thank everyone one both the web-development and mailmanusers 
lists for all your help and Kathleen for some really great instructions!

Now, is there a way to SEARCH on mailman archives?  I don't see it as 
an option in pipermail ... I'll bet there's a FAQ about this though so 
I'm going to Google it.
