Thanks Keith for the pointers on icecast and ices-cc installation how-to.
I followed the instructions and completed the two installations in no time.

Once, the two programs are installed on CentOS, what's next.

Lend a guiding hand to an eager newbie. And keep those straight guidelines
coming, please.

TIA
