[icecast] mount points & multiple streams

I am successfully running Ices and IceCast with a single stream but I would like to incorporate a few more streams.

Please bare with me as I am new to Linux and learning fast. I will buy some of the books suggested today.

I a have the ices.conf in /etc/ices. 
In order to create multiple streams do I have to create additional .conf files?  If so where do I place these .conf files? Can I place them in /etc/ices but rename them?   Or should I create a new directory EX: /etc/icesStream2/ with the coincidding ices.conf?

When I start ices does it only look for ices.conf?

I currently start ices either by typing /etc/rc.d/init.d/ices or /usr/bin/ices. Which is correct?

When I create a mount point for a stream should I also create a directory in my /etc/ices related to or with the same name as the mount point?

Thanks again!!!!
