[Mailman-Users] Mailman CGI not working

I'm a newbie, and have just installed mailman on Red Hat 9, with the
apache web server.  None of it was done with rpm, I downloaded,
configured and compiled from both apache.org and the mailman site.  I've
created the 'mailman' list, after having gone through all install docs.
Mailman's cgi does not work, however.  The documentation said to check
the apache group setting, which is at the default right now #-1, but I
have changed it to gid 99, to no avail.  Default cgi group is apparently
www in mailman, although the username is nobody in apache (gid 99 in
redhat) for httpd.  How do I get the mailman cgi to work?  I've set the
scriptalias directive in apache to /mailman/ /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin

I also tried re-running the configure script using the --with-cgi-id ,
but no matter what it seems to use www.

The first mailing from the mailman list went to my email ok, returning
the link <myserver>.vcd.hp.com/mailman/admin/mailman, but all that is
returned is the "object not found - the requested URL was not found on
this server"

Any help is greatly appreciated.
