Yes, pardon, finger dyslexia.

No, what I meant by instances was multiple non-forked instances of the
executable in the process table, ie icecast run multiple times with different
port options.  I see from your answer below that this is no longer possible.

jack> You likely are using the wrong option to iceplay (god knows why you are

Because the version I'm using is neither outdated nor inadequate.  It's been
improved by other people and it works great.  The version I'm using has mysql
as a back end for keeping album and playlist information (and everything is
handled via a web interface for creating, editing, and choosing playlists,
requesting songs, etc, but that's not part of iceplay, that's just the stuff
that wraps around it.  Very similar to dj lizard).

jack> We do everything on one port, but you can specify multiple ports. Each

I'll see what I can do with that mount points instead of using different
ports.  Thanks for the info.
