What do you mean by 'nothing happens'?

After you click the 'Create List' button on the create list web admin GUI 
page, what is displayed?

The log entries you cite do not show that you have submitted the completed 
list creation web form to your server; no POST operation appears in the 
Apache server log as a consequence of you clicking the 'Create List' button 
on the form; the method for the FORM tag on the create web page is "POST" 
so if you submit the form then a POST operation should be logged by Apache. 
For instance, my Apache server logs the following entries when I create a 
list successfully.

mm.mydomain.tld - - [09/Jul/2003:12:52:51 +0100] "GET /mailman/create 
HTTP/1.0" 200 8834
mm.mydomain.tld - - [09/Jul/2003:12:53:50 +0100] "POST /mailman/create 
HTTP/1.0" 200 1454

I am also a little confused by the HTTP 302 response code (temporary 
redirect response) shown for the first attempt to access /mailman/create in 
the Apache log entries you cite. Do you have some sort of MM URI rerwiting 
set up on your Apache server? If so, maybe that is interfering with things.
