[Mailman-Users] Need help getting started...

Hello guys,

I've looked at mailman several times over the past three years -- but 
always decided against it simply because I have limited computer expertise 
and usually need the help of a support desk. However, after pricing some of 
the bloated programs on the market like Web Crossing -- and after the 
recent decision by the Yohooligians at Yahoogroups to drop images from the 
archives -- I'm ready to give Mailman a try.

I have several groups and I need to start a new one now for motorcycle 
builders. Rather than using yahoo -- I would like to start this group off 
using Mailman -- but I don't have a clue where to begin and I'm up against 
a deadline for a project -- so I just don't have the time to educate myself 
right now.  We are on a Linux server.

Our web sites and discussion groups are aimed at shops, such as metal 
working shops, race car shops, blacksmith shops etc.  All the lists use a 
lot of graphics -- and the archives and the photos are the backbone of each 
group. Yahoo has ruined that and I need to do something quickly. There are 
lots of web based forums available but my groups want e-mail lists.

Is there anyone on this list who could give me some help getting the first 
list set up?
