with a 512k connection you could provide 9 streams (512kbps / 56knps)
simultaniuosly. But the A in ADSL means that your up stream is not as big as
your downstream is. So consider that!

in the limits section of the icecast configuration file you can limit the
umber of simultanious clients with
for 100 clients (which includes sources and admins I think) for instance
and you can also limit the number of listeners for each stream. Just have a
closer look to the configuration file. I think it is well commented.
