If you follow the "create a new mailing list" link from
<http://localhost/cgi-bin/mailman/admin>, it should take you to a form
at <http://localhost/cgi-bin/mailman/create>. When you submit that
form, you must specify your installation's list creator password in
the last field on the form. This password is set by Mailman's
bin/mmsitepass. See

bin/mmsitepass --help
