[Mailman-Users] web configuration interface

Howdy folks! I hope this isn't too much of a dumb newbie question.

I've got Mailman running (pre-installed) on Mac OS X Tiger, and list  
messages are being delivered, but I'd like to do some configuration  
that isn't available through the Server Admin interface. Mailman  
seems to think the configuration web pages are in the http:// 
mail.bdanube.net/mailman/ directory path, but I can't connect there.  
I have public DNS records for bdanube.net and www.bdanube.net, but  
for mail.bdanube.net I have only an MX record, not an A record. I can  
access the mailman pages by replacing mail.bdanube.net with the  
server's LAN IP address in the browser's address bar, but internal  
links on the pages are broken too (I can kinda-sorta get them to work  
by saving the pages and editing them to change the link href's), and  
my admin password is always rejected when I try to log into the  
config page. I'm hoping that's due to the domain-name problem and not  
still another unrelated glitch.

So what do I do now? Do I have to reconfigure Apache, or set up a  
local DNS server, or request a public A record for mail.bdanube.net,  
or what? I've looked at Apple's Tiger Server documentation as well as  
the online Mailman documentation linked from it, but so far I'm  
coming up empty.

Many thanks in advance,
