Search for the text 'Client Authentication Scheme' in manual.html in 
/doc from the icecast1 source tarball. This explains how you setup users 
in icecast1 very well - there *are* docs out there!

You need to make sure that you 3 files in your config directory:

users.aut : This holds the users and passwords separated by a colon, eg:

adminusr:somepass
sysadmin:somepass
normusr:somepass

groups.aut : This defines user groups and says which users are in which 
groups. Eg:

admin:adminuser,sysadmin

mounts.aut : This defines mountpoints on your icecast server (such as 
/admin) that you want to control access to. It lists mountpoints 
followed by a colon and a comma separated list of *groups* that you want 
to allow access to a mountpoint.

eg:
/admin:admin
(this allows the admin group access to the /admin mountpoint, provided 
they enter their password correctly of course).
