There's something called "The Fine Manual". It usually comes with 
icecast, but you'll also find it here:
http://icecast.org/docs/icecast-2.3.1/

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. 
http://192.168.0.1:8000 or  http://127.0.0.1:8000 if the server runs on 
the same machine as the webbrowser.

Cheers

Thomas
