Mandrake already has the include file on your server - you may need to
modify the settings slightly to match where you installed your Mailman. 
Look for it under the directory /etc/httpd/..

Here is a copy of the one I'm using on my current test system (which is
currently RH9)

#  httpd configuration settings for use with mailman.
ScriptAlias /mailman/ /var/mailman/cgi-bin/
Alias /pipermail/ /var/mailman/archives/public/
<Directory /var/mailman/archives>
        Options +FollowSymlinks
# Uncomment the following line, replacing www.example.com with your
# name, to redirect queries to /mailman to the listinfo page
# RedirectMatch /mailman[/]*$ http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
