<p>First off, you need some sort of streaming server (preferably 
icecast).  Configuring icecast is pretty easy.  Now you need a streamer 
that will take the line in from your soundcard (I'm assuming you are
the line in of your soundcard to get the FM broadcast onto your
and encode it to mp3.  I've found that Darkice does a pretty good job at

this.  Also, Liveice will complete the task.

should get you started.

Hope it helps,
