[Icecast] a few questions

I have just gotten a stream working and it is very cool. I am using 
ices0.4 to stream mp3s to icecast2 under redhat 9. I have a couple of 
questions, though:

1. No files are being written to the admin directory. It is successfully 
writing the access and error logs and the pid file. The path is correct 
in the icecast.xml file. The user has write access to the admin 
directory. Do I need to turn something on?

2. Also, no files are being written to the web directory. Same situation 
as above.

3. With ices0.4, is there any way to force ices to change the mp3 that 
it is playing while it is running in the background? I'd like to set up 
somekind of request system. Is there a script that does this?
