And it works very well.  If you connect to WREK's broadcast, for example,
that's streamed by an icecast server I'm running on a Solaris box at Georgia
Tech.  In WREK's case, we're also doing a much lower-fidelity stream using
an old Real server as well (for people using things like WebTV or older
AOHELL which cannot do streaming mp3).  At any rate, decide what platform /
browser combos you want to be able to access the station, then test them
against WREK <http://www.wrek.org/> to make sure that Icecast will work for
you.

later,
chris
