I am very new to Mailman - we've been a long-time user of Majordomo.  I 
like the idea of being able to manage lists with a web interface, 
rather than something such as Webmin.

I installed Postfix, Apache and Mailman on a test system (Sun Sparc, 
Solaris 8).  I got all to compile and install properly.

However, and I have to apologize because I know you all have probably 
discussed this a million times over by now, but I can't get Apache to 
work and recognize the cgi-bin directory.

Here's a cut and paste from my httpd.conf file...

     ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin
     Alias /pipermail/ /usr/local/mailman/archives/public/
Logs and ht directory...
     <Directory "/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/">
       AllowOverride None
       Options None
       Order allow,deny
       Allow from all
     <Directory "/usr/local/mailman/archives/public/">
       Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
       AllowOverride none
       Order allow,deny
       Allow from all

When I try to access my site via http using a URL similar to this:  

I get a 404 File Not Found error

Not Found

The requested URL /mailman/create was not found on this server

Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
