	That's a typical method of installing Mailman.

	Note that Apple provides their own customized version of Mailman 
with MacOS X 10.3 Server, and that a number of people have created 
pages with extensive information on how they have installed Mailman 
on MacOS X "Jaguar" and "Panther" (non-Server).

for more information.

	If you wanted to do extensive customization of the "look and 
feel" of Mailman, yes.

	Most people don't even bother to edit the public HTML templates 
through the existing facilities provided by Mailman.
