that seems correct.  If the different mount points are listed then that is
not the problem.

Why do you specify port 8001 in ices, however ? if you left icecast.conf
as per default, it listens on both 8000 and 8001, so that should work,
anyway.  But it seems a weird thing to do, and I'm not sure how the
metadata streaming works that winamp expects, but I would think that
winamp tries to look for it on a port where icecast is not listening.
I would also try specifying port 8000 or dropping the parameter altogether
(since 8000 is the default).

If you give your ip address and it's accessible, I could listen and maybe
hear what the problem is.
