setup a samba client on the linux box so it can mount the directory on windows box with the mp3's then run icecast. would be a lot easier on your network if had the mp3's and the server running on the same box.

Thumbs up This will do it...

I saw this on "The Screensavers" the other night. You can download the free server to do what you want to do... They actually demo'ed it using the layout you describe!!!
