ah.
Ok, so is there any way to play my mp3 files (i.e. convert to ogg
on-the-fly or something)?

My goal is to be able to take my collection of CDs (now in 256k mp3
bitstream) and distribute through the house over the wireless network
(har-line network for other stuff).  Just trying to play with some of the
existing technologies before getting the hardware.  The next step is to
have different ices services, serving multiple icecast streams for a
virtual
'multi-room' system.
