      The web interface for adding a list is at 
http://domain.tld/mailman/create .  As you would need (to reset?) the main 
mailman password, and would need to change the administrator address, using 
the command line is going to be necessary - so I'd just create from the 
list command line.  Use:

# <prefix>/mailman/bin/newlist listname

      Where <prefix> is the path to the mailman install, and listname is 
the name of the desired list.  Copy the aliases entries to the appropriate 
location on your server.
