I'm guessing that you're using Mailman 2.1.1 (if not, you might as well
start with that version).  If you've unpacked the mailman tarball you should
have the following files:

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS  FAQ              mkinstalldirs*  README.MACOSX     templates/
admin/           gnu-COPYING-GPL  NEWS            README.NETSCAPE   tests/
bin/             INSTALL          README          README.POSTFIX    TODO
BUGS             install-sh*      README.BSD      README.QMAIL      UPGRADING
configure*       Mailman/         README.CONTRIB  README.SENDMAIL
configure.in     Makefile.in      README.EXIM     README.USERAGENT
contrib/         messages/        README-I18N.en  scripts/
cron/            misc/            README.LINUX    src/

If that's not what your directory listing looks like, you don't have the
right tarball or you haven't unpacked it right.

You'll want to read README, FAQ, INSTALL, and any README.* files that
pertain to your OS or MTA (ie README.LINUX and README.SENDMAIL).

Once you get through all that, if you still have questions that you can't
find in the list archives or the online faq (listed in the list footers)
feel free to ask them here.
