OK, you should use the latest version of ices and set it up to re-encode
with libmp3lame.  liveice is no longer supported by anyone (AFAIK).

Do you have your encoder setup?  I remember having this problem way back
when I first started using Icecast..(Wow, that was a while ago)

The server is probably working fine.  Try first reinstalling liveice, make
sure you have your encoder set up correctly (preferrably lame in this
case) and make sure that you have it setup for CD mode.

However, if you are not sending in Live Input (even if you were, there are
better programs for Live Streaming) you should be using ices.  It's also
available for download from http://www.icecast.org/
