Yes, I see that it is an Apache issue. In httpd.conf, for the Document
Root, I have set:

<Directory />
        RewriteEngine On
    Options FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all

Options All

I also have a Directory entry for the /usr/local/mailman directory,
with ExecCGI specified, which I guess is redundant if I have it above.

As for mod_cgi, Apache says that it is loading it on startup.

I know this isn't and Apache mailing list, but if you have
suggestions, they are most welcome.
