Almost right. The playlist.m3u is a audio/x-mpegurl file that you web
server serves, it is a text file that contains the link for your stream.

So in you apache config put a line like so:

   AddType audio/x-mpegurl .m3u

then make a m3u file with a text editor which that conatins one line
that points to your streams like so:

http://my.server:8000/mountpoint

obviously using the real names for you icecast server and mountpoint. Then on the webpage make the a href tag point to the m3u file like so:

<a href="http://my.webserver/playlist.m3u"> (assuming you called your
m3u file playlist.m3u)

That should get you going.
