[Mailman-Users] Questions from a new user on a personalised web interface...

I am new to this - in fact, my list is no yet operative beyond mere
testing with a handful of members.
I am trying to create my own personalised web interface for a new
mailing list and so far some things have gone successfully and some
others are proving difficult to do (I am a novice in both Mailing Lists
AND webpage design!) For reference:
http://www.mactalk.org.uk/index.html (but it's in early construction)!
I have trawled the Mailman FAQs for various solutions and some of these
talk about altering Mailman config files. How on earth does one go
about doing this? I am using an AppleMac, though my listhost uses
Linux, I believe, so I am not really used to command line or terminal
work. It's all totally greek to me and I need a step-by-step
hand-holding guide to doing this, please. Can anyone help?
Also, I have successfully got a "subscribe" page working in my
personalised web interface, using a form and action script, basically
copied and pasted from the standard Mailman subscribe page, but how do
I find what other cgi action scripts are available to me, in order to
add further features? (Forgive me if this is totally basic, but we all
have to learn somewhere (and personal computers weren't even invented
when I was at school, so it's all a steep learning curve!)
Thanks in advance
