[Mailman-Users] Mailman install on Debian problem.

I'm a bit of a newbie and am having problems figuring how to use 
mailman.  I've installed mailman using apt-get and I'm trying to figure out 
to which directory to create a symbolic link for apache.  I'm not entirely 
sure that this is what I'm supposed to be doing, just that I've done it for 
other software that I've installed.  The furthest that I've gone is to link 
to /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman, but when I go to http://mydomain/mailman/admin 
I get a page that has a bunch of japanese characters and some html.  The 
html referes to a Mailman CGI Error.  Another part of the page says "The 
expected gid of the Mailman CGI wrapper did not match the gid as set by the 
Web server.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.  So far the only help that 
I've received is that Mailman is supposed to work out of the box, which 
doesn't appear to be the case for me.  I even tried a dpkg ---purge on it 
and then re-installing and still get the same results.
