[icecast] "Bind to socket failed"

I'm running RedHat 7.2 (kernel 2.4.17) on a PII 300. I'm using Liveice
with XMMS. I had no problem broadcasting with Shoutcast and Winamp back
before I switched over to Linux. I'd love to get going on broadcasting...
but Icecast refusing to open is a problem.

Running icecast gives me the following.

Starting thread engine...

-> [04/Feb/2002:13:57:49] Removing remaining sources...
-> [04/Feb/2002:13:57:49] Exiting..

I can't find anything running on that port. I've tried running the server
on various ports, and still nothing.

Also, is there some sort of -verbose option that might shed some light on
this problem?
