If you are interested in using icecast1, which I also run concurrently
with icecast2 for streaming KSL audio content, there is an older HowTo
at the following address:
http://quasi.ksl.com/icecast/legacy/
Looks like it is in Star Office/Open Office format. If you need it
changed to a PDF file, I can do that pretty quicklu.
Hope that helps.
