I've had quite a bit of success using Peercast in both the Linux
and Windows version, Linux version running under Redhat 9 has been
rock solid for a few months now. The Peercast software is interesing
as it supports both direct connections as an Icecast Server and 
also Peercast connections to form a Peercast P2P Net. The streams
I have been serving with it are Pure Ogg Theora video/Vorbis audio
it works a treat. A 250k loop is currently up in the Peercast 
Yellow pages, yp.peercast.org their main site is www.peercast.org.
All their stuff is open source so you can either build yourself
or download precompiled.

Best Regards
