try this..

in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file (assuming RH compatible)
su -c /usr/local/icecast/bin/icecast iceadm &

create the user iceadm and edit the /etc/shadow file

replace the !! that follows iceadm:  with a '*'.  
iceadm:*:<whatever is there>.....

the '*' tells the os that it's a non-loginable acct.

I use this format for all services.  icecast, junkbuster, squid, etc.

Hope that helps,
matt
