Sounds like you're using the mailman rpm from redhat.  If so, there *should*
be a README.REDHAT file in the doc dir (/usr/share/doc/mailman-<version>).

I say should because I think the rpm shipped with redhat 9 didn't include
any docs (among it's other deficiencies).  If that's the rpm you have, you
probably want to either rebuild from source (which is very easy if you
follow the instructions) or get an updated mailman rpm from redhat's rawhide
(search the archives for this list for a url to some bugzilla reports about
the problems with the redhat 9 rpm's).

The README.REDHAT file details the basic steps you need to take to get
mailman configured for your system after installation.  The rpm doesn't (and
really can't) do some of these things for you.
