Getting closer... have managed to create a list via webmin and including
listname, email and password... I added the required allias info into the
/etc/aliases file.... restarted the system and then went to the link in the
email received from the new list creation...

What I get is...

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable
to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, root at localhost and inform them of
the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Any suggestions?

Yes, it seems like you can't run interactive commands via Webmin.

Yes. As long as you can login via telnet as a user (mailman ?) with the
required access, that would be the way to run the bin/* tools, or you may be
able to run them via Webmin by including all required arguments on the
command line, so no prompting occurs. E.g.,

bin/newlist list_name owner_email list_pw
