The Red Hat rpm installation puts the documentation for software in
/usr/share/doc/<name>-<version>/.  There is an INSTALL.REDHAT file for
mailman that covers the post installation setup that needs done for
mailman.  You'll want to check that out as well as possibly reading
the other README files that are shipped with mailman.

As a more general tip, you can use rpm -qd mailman to get a list of
all the documentation files in the mailman rpm.
