 Ive just tried running that but I'm getting this error:

 [root at junglised ~]# rpm -ivh 
 http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/icecast-2.3.2-4.el5.i386.rpm

 - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error

 (download.fedoraproject.org http)

 I'm guessing its because my VPS is 64 bit? If it's the case I'll do a 
 fresh install of the 32bit version.
