[icecast] Icecast/LiveIce Problems

First of all, please define "Linux 7.0", since the last time I knew linux
was only up to 2.4. It annoys me incredibly when people refer to the
distribution version xx as "linux version xx".

Now, you are correct in saying that they probably can't coexist because of
soundcard issues. There is, however, an XMMS IceCast plugin.

Also, buffering only means that either you should lower your bitrate, or
increase the buffer size in winamp, althought this will take longer to load.
