You just make a config entry in the icecast2 xml file saying which directory 
to use as the web root. e.g. if you give /local/music, then a file 
called /local/music/ska/Specials.ogg would be streamed from the url 
I don't think it makes the m3u/pls files, but you can do that in the script 
that makes your web pages like you say.

Please don't send me html mail or un-notified attachments. These will be 
automatically filed under 'probable spam' unless I'm expecting an email which 
hasn't come.
If you do need to send an attachment or html mail, put [attachment] or [html] 
in the subject line.
Thanks, andy.
