[Icecast] Getting dump file to save as date and time, not %d_%m_%Y-%H%M_%S.mp3

 This along with the help of Sascha got me setup in no time so thanks to 
 the both of you!

 I've updated the subject of this as I have a different minor issue in 
 that the dump file is saving as "%d_%m_%Y-%H%M_%S.mp3" rather than the 
 actual date and time. I remember on my last server I had to complie 
 Icecast from source so this was done with the version i complied and it 
 worked, but the rpm build we've used here obviously doesn't have it 
 included. Is there a simple way of getting this added or will I have to 
 complie it from source again?

 Thanks again for all your assistance.
