I did a locate, but now I just did a specific ls -l.. wow - talk about softlink 
hell. What has FC come to? (sigh)

Yea, I saw that...

and to the notes earlier about sendmail integration, there's an .MC file to 
handle list at mailman.your.domain which reroutes all those though the mailer in 
sendmail rather than through aliases... I'm not needing the former, so I'm using 
the latter. I run like < 10 lists, so aliases are fine with me.
