I assume you knew how to unpack the Majordomo tarball on your mail
server, so the fact that you don't know how to do likewise on your web

your Majordomo server MUST HAVE A WEB SERVER ON IT.
You need full shell access on the web server in order to run the
Configure script. You cannot simply "upload" all the files and make it
