[icecast] bad buffering

Hi all!

I installed icecast & ices (from CVS)
Enerything runs, but with some problems:

When I connect to the server (with XMMS or MPlayer)
the buffer runs empty very quickly, causing interruptions.

My "server" is an old Pentium 120 with 64MB RAM ,a HD of 8G and an
ethernet NIC.
(I know it isn't much, but I'm tired of taking my CD collection to
work.) I ripped the tracks in OGG format at 56kbps 22050 Hz Samplerate.

my partial ices config:

         <encode>
            <nominal-bitrate>56000</nominal-bitrate>
            <!-- bps. e.g. 64000 for 64 kbps -->
            <!-- samplerate>22050</samplerate -->
            <channels>2</channels>
         </encode>

this is my CPU-load on the server:

 21:05:19 up 1 day, 23:00,  2 users,  load average: 1.07, 0.78, 0.60
47 processes: 45 sleeping, 2 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states:  97.1% user,   2.9% system,   0.0% nice,   0.0% idle
Mem:     62348K total,    55912K used,     6436K free,    17900K buffers

 1669 icecast    0   0  1864 1864  1320 S     0.3  2.9   0:00 icecast
 

Some hints?

Thanx a lot!

Wim
