I found out the path to my mailing list archives. I first checked the link 
on the admin page ->go to list archives -> 2006-June.txt.gz File name. I 
then did a "find" on this file on our server. I found out that  my archives 
were in /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/newlist directory. I think by 
default in linux the archives are put here. Looks like I need NOT have put 
the following entry in my httpd.conf file:

Alias    /pipermail/    /usr/lib/mailmanarchives/public

Thank you all for your help.
