I've done that.  I originally installed it on my home RedHat Linux
computer.  But as more and more sites started refusing email from dynamic
IPs, I got a virtual private server at linode.com with Debian installed on
it.  That worked very well for mailman, but some of my other things I was
doing on the linode didn't work so well, so now I've got a colocation box,
installed Debian and Xen, and the mailman lists are running nicely there.
