You didn't move the lists to the right place. RedHat puts things all
over the place to be FHS compliant. There should have already been a
/var/lib/mailman/lists/ directory which is where you should put your
lists/* subdirectories. Likewise, /var/lib/mailman/archives/private/.
for a map.
There is no global config file. If there is a
lists/<listname>/config.pck file, the <listname> list exists.
