Question Net Radio Program?

Hey everyone,
I just sucessfully installed Mandrake 9.2 onto my machine and everything seems to be running excellent! I had a ATI Radeon All-In-Wonder TV card that I was use to watching TV with on my computer but it got to distracting whenever I was typing up papers. So I took it out and bought myself an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro off E-Bay.

Well anyway here is my question, I was use to listining to radio stations off the net with windows media player. But for a while I tried to see if there was a program similiar to that that would stream live music off the net. I currently downloaded and installed RealPlayer 8, but some sites want you to suscribe to thier services for live feeds . There was also the new version of WinAmp that has the ability to listen to the radio.

Is there a version of WinAmp or other App that would used just to listen into net radio stations. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

1. Install XMMS (if not already installed) and any plugins.

2. Download the Equalizer Presets (Optional, but very nice to have).

To install the new presets use:
gunzip -c winamp_presets.gz > ~/.xmms/eq.preset
3. Go to ShoutCast and select your music station.

4. Play.


You can get some Winamp Skins, and with a new skin you can make XMMS to look like WinAmp 5.

Skins ONLY for your user account? place them in:
Skins for ALL users? place them in:
Some stations to get you started. Right-click on the XMMS playlist and select "Add-->Url"

The 80's:

Hope that helps.
