Hello list thank you for having me.

I have some tough questions regarding my installation of Mailman on a 
Mac running OS X Server 10.2.8.

I have successfully installed Mailman (Python was already installed as 
expected).  I am able to create lists and have done so.  I think there 
is a problem with my allases but I will deal with that problem later.  
I am not able to subscribe and am not responded to when I send 
subscription messages etc.

But...more importantly,  the web interface is not coming up when I type 
in www.beathustler.com/mailman.  I host several sites but my lookup 
name name is www.beathustler.com and that's what I entered as per the 
Mailman install instructions.  Now my site lives on a different drive 
than my boot volume and the CGI bin, etc.  Do I have to create a 
symboic link to the Mailman web home and if so where is the home of 
Mailman's web interface on a UNIX install?  I don't see any index.html 
anywhere.  Is the personal Mailman web page compiled solely in CGI?  
The default CGI bin doesn't seem to have any Mailman scripts either.  
I'm getting "file not found" though not "Forbidden" which I would 
expect to at least see if it were a permissions issue.  Needless to say 
there is no "Mailman" folder on the home of my website which confuses 
me.  Shouldn't there need to be something called /Mailman on my web 
home to make /myhome.com/Mailman work?

Thanks very much in advance for any help.
