That much I figured out. I'm trying to use winamp to set up a remote
broadcast. Where do I tell (either icecast or winamp) what the mount
point is. When I use the shoutcast source it appears to create a mount
moint cammed ice_0. I have no idea where that comes from.

I see the /etc/mounts.aut file and the groups.aut and users.aut. I just
don't see where I make a connection between streem comming in and "mount
point" goint out. 

Thanks in advance


PS - I hope someone is keeping track of this ... it'll make a good FAQ.
