[Mailman-Users] 403 Forbidden Error when creating list

Hi, I am new to mailman and are running it on a FreeBSD 5.4 server.
Additionally, I am running Apache2 and postfix.  I have configured
mailman, apache2 and postfix according to documents, but are receiving
an 403 Forbidden error when I attempt to access

This is my /var/log/httpd-error.log file

[Fri Aug 05 14:03:11 2005] [error] [client] client denied by
server configuration: /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/create
[Fri Aug 05 14:10:48 2005] [error] [client] client denied by
server configuration: /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/admin

It is apparent that I have a permissions issue, but I am not sure how to
correct it.  I have added the following to my  apache2 httpd.conf file

ScriptAlias /mailman "/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin"
Alias /pipermail "/usr/local/mailman/archives/public"

I will appreciate any assistance or direction you could provide in
helping me correct this problem
