You run ezstream and the playlist specified in the ezstream config file 
lists the files to be played.  So here's how it works:

1. You make a list of MP3 files which are to be played.

2.  You specify this playlist file in your ezstream configuration.

3.  You also specify your icecast server in your ezstream configuration.

4.   You run ezstream which connects to your icecast server and streams 
your files as listed in the playlist file you have listed in the config 

5.  People tune into your icecast server and hear what ezstream is sending 

I'm not 100% sure where you're running into trouble, hopefully this has 
helped you narrow down the problem.  If not, please tell us exactly what 
you are doing and what happens when you do it, including any error messages 
you receive.
