As for darkice, there are man pages, which (IMHO) are rather good at 
explaining how to configure the stuff. Also there is a sample 
configuration file in the package.

For the whole setup, I don't know of any howto. Maybe you can write one 
:) But in short:

- set up icecast2
- set up darkice to reflect the icecast2 server settings (server name, 
port, password) and the stream settings (sample rate, bit rate, etc.)
- use your favourite mixer to select the recording device (e.g. line-in 
or microphone) and recording level
- that's it
