I think that SAM streams WMA via both "push" and "pull".  In the 
"pull" case, listeners connect directly to the SAM encoder, 
alternatively you can configure a Windows Media Server to "pull" from 
your SAM encoder and then have listeners attach to that.  "Push" 
means SAM will send the WMA stream to a supported media server, which 
I think only happens to be the Windows Media Server.  Either way, as 
Geoff already said, Icecast doesn't play a part in any of this WMA 
streaming (push or pull), and so your question is not related to 
icecast at all, but rather simply WMA streaming.  I doubt you'll get 
much more help that I just gave on how to do WMA streaming from this list.

perhaps you can try the SAM forums ?
