In addition, there is a sample Icecast config file for use with Shoutcast 
clients.  That should tell you how to set things up.

There's something called "The Fine Manual". It usually comes with
icecast, but you'll also find it here:

You can confirm that the server is running by accessing its web
interface. it is on port 8000 by default. In the default configuration
that would be: http://IP.OF.YOUR.SERVER:8000 - e.g. or if the server runs on
the same machine as the webbrowser.
