    To fix this:

    delete /etc/webmin/config
    cd /usr/libexec/webmin
    sh./setup.sh

    Don't Know what the problem was but this fixes it.

    I see how this happens - the webmin configuration set up by the
    mandrake RPM uses /etc/ssl/webmin/miniserv.pem as the SSL key
    file location. However, when you upgrade to the 'official'
    webmin RPM
    this key file is deleted, but a reference to it still
    appears in
    /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf . The best solution is to install
    mandrake's
    1.000 RPM of webmin instead, if and when they release one ..

    I'll add code to webmin so that it doesn't use SSL mode if
    the SSL
    key file cannot be found ..
