I don't know a lot about mandrake, but I happen to have a mandrake 9.0
install (VMware is great for testing, BTW).  I installed the apache,
mailman, and postfix rpms.  I ran mmsitepass and then created a test list.
Viewing the mailman listinfo page I got no errors.  It does appear that a
stock mandrake install works.

Looking at the apache config, apache is set to run as user apache, which is
uid 76 in /etc/passwd.  That's odd because it's neither 48 nor 99 like in
your error messages.

One thing I don't know much about with mandrake is the security levels.  Is
it possible that the security level setting plays some role in this?  I only
have my test box set to the standard security level.

As many on the list could tell you, the combo of apache, postfix, and
mailman works very well together.  The worst case scenario for you would be
compiling mailman from source, as Jon pointed out already.  But seeing as my
default, mandrake install works well without any tweaking, it doesn't seem
like the mandrake rpms are fundamentally broken.  It's more likely that just
a few tweaks are needed.  Perhaps the mandrake lists have some useful clues
in their archives?  (The mailman-users archives might even have something
helpful, but I'm guessing you might have already checked them. :)
