1st problem is that only Icecast 2.0 supports OGG streams, while older
servers are restricted to MP3 streaming. I don't know of any Win32
binaries of Icecast 2.0 (which is still beta). Maybe someone else can
help you out.

On an Icecast 2.0 server, you'd have a relay URL
"http://fusion1.studio.strath.ac.uk:8000/radiofg.ogg" . The extension
".ogg" is currently needed to let clients distinguish between MP3 and
OGG streams.
