[icecast] Icecast/LiveIce Problems

I'm having a couple problems trying to get Icecast and LiveIce set up on
a Linux 7.0 system.

I'm running Icecast 1.3.10 without a config file (using all defaults).

I can use shout to stream to it and connect to it from a windows machine
running WinAmp.  It works OK except winamp stops every few seconds and
tells me that it's buffering.  It buffers for a few seconds and then
plays a few more seconds.  Does anyone have any ideas here?

My other problem is with LiveIce streaming.  What I want to do is use
XMMS on a Linux machine play and then have LiveIce stream this.  I don't
think I can run XMMS and LiveIce on the same machine since they both
want to use the soundcard.

So what I've done is run icecast on the machine running XMMS and then
cable from line out on that sound card to line in on another Linux
machine which is running LiveIce.  I can plug in speakers on that
machine and hear what's playing from the first, but when I try to listen
to that stream from winamp all I get is a bunch of clicks (like when you
play back a VBR mp3 with a decoder that can't do it).  I've tried using
both lame and xingmp3enc (with the kernel module).

I hope that these are simple config problems and that someone can help
