    In the version that I have, the instructions are located in the INSTALL
    file.

    ***

    Make sure this directory is set to group `mailman' and has the
    setgid bit set. You probably also want to guarantee that this
    directory is read and executeable by everyone. For example,
    these shell commands will accomplish this:

    % cd $prefix
    % chgrp mailman .
    % chmod a+rx,g+ws .

    You are now ready to configure and install the Mailman software.

    ***

    I am running Version 1.1, but I would think that it would be the same in
    most, if not, all of them.

    Hope this hopes.
