Icecast 2

Yes, I have had no problems running a 100 user relay on a Pentium 3.

I find Icecast2 more configurable, it supports multiple mountpoints, has a
smaller memory footprint and hasn't yet crashed on me.

Winamp is not an audio format.

Icecast2 can stream OGG and MP3, both of which are playable by most media
players available now.
