[icecast] Difficulties with Ices2

I have been successful in running a playlist through Ices and Icecast...
I have run into difficulty running a live stream through the soundcard,

The following is the log when I attempt to run ices ices-mylive.xml:

INFO ices-core/main ices started...
EROR input-oss/oss_open_module Couldn't set sample format to AFMT_S16_LE
EROR input/input_loop Couldn't initialise input module "oss"
INFO ices-core/main Shutdown complete

Contents of the ices-mylive.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <background>0</background> <!-- run in background? (unimplemented) -->
    <logpath>/usr/local/icecast</logpath> <!-- where logs, etc go. -->
    <loglevel>4</loglevel> <!-- 1=error,2=warn,3=info,4=debug -->
        <!-- set this to 1 to log to console of file above -->
        <!-- metadata used for stream listing (not currently used) -->

            <param name="rate">11000</param> <!-- samplerate 22050 best-->
            <param name="channels">1</param> <!-- number of channels -->
            <param name="device">/dev/dsp</param> <!-- audio device -->
            <param name="metadata">0</param>
            <param name="metadatafilename">test</param>
                    <!-- bps. e.g. 64000 for 64 kbps -->
                    <!-- bps. e.g. 32000 optimal for lesser cards -->
                    <!-- 22050 optimal for older cards -->

The config is pretty simple, a SuSE 8.0 box.  Soundcard is a SB Pro 2
using OSS.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!
