Ah, that's very informative, thank you!  I thought I would have to setup 
cron, but that part's done already, probably :)

I can browse to http://localhost/ and apache is there, running fine.


http://localhost/mailman/admin/  doesn't bring up anything.  I'm looking 
at the wiki, and not sure how proceed on that.  While I'm using the FQDN 
dur.bounce.net in mm_cfg.py for the url and e-mail host, that FQDN won't 
resolve (is that the correct term?).

I'm just doing everything on localhost.
