Hopefully this will save time for someone else...

Turns out all 5 of my machines don't have this ability in the (Dell) 
Integrated Audio, or at least the Windows drivers can't make use of 
it.    I have Win7 (64bit) and XPSP3 machines.  In most cases I have 
"SIGMATEL STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio".  If the HW actually has a mixer, 
I should be able to find out next time I boot FreeBSD or Fedora on one 
of these boxes.

In work (yet another Dell), I was able to enable "stereo mix" and 
anything I play with VLC, WMP etc. can be used by Edcast Standalone for 
Icecast.

Now the question is do I want a PCIe or just PCI sound card?  Win7 64bit 
support a must.  This assumes I have a free slot <g>

Thanks to everyone for all your help getting started.
