	The password you use.  You either need to use the "list creators" 
password, or the "site manager" password.  You should have created 
those at the command-line with with mmsitepass when you installed 
Mailman.  Alternatively, someone else should have created those 
passwords when they installed Mailman, and they should have shared 
them with you if they wanted you to be able to create new mailing
