first of all you need to learn how icecast works, what id does, etc...

ServerSide u need:
-icecast for example :)

SourceSide u need:
-winamp, ices, or any other suitable util (not tested shoutcast source with
icecast)

ClientSide everybody needs:
-some_stream_player (eg. winamp)

BTW, what u need to know here is that icecast only streams stuffs to
multiple directions, from multiple mountpoints

With the source stuff you can stream to icecast
generally 3 types of them: - livestream - playlist - script(or external
program) based input

And to answer to your question NO You dont have to dl icecast to your
"client" machine.
And next time you should really care about the docs, howtos, etcs hanging
around the web
