This is a web server question. You need to tell your web server to
execute files in Mailman's cgi-bin directory, not to serve them or files
in Mailman/Cgi.

What web server are you using?

In apache you need things like

ScriptAlias /mailman/       /path/to/mailman/cgi-bin/

and possibly

LoadModule cgi_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_cgi.so

<Directory "/path/to/mailman/cgi-bin/">
    Options ExecCGI
