Icecast doesn't run as a service on win32 currently. I'm sure a competent 
windows programmer could make it do so if they wanted to.

Your question here is very unclearly phrased, but I think the answer is "no, 
you can't do that with icecast". You can probably, however, get much of the 
same effect using relays and fallbacks.
