yahoo launchcast

I like to listen to streaming music from yahoo launchcast in windows but I don't know how to do it from linux. I have mozilla and opera installed. When I try to open the player with mozilla, it just gets and error and says netscape 6 is not supported. When I try to open with opera it gets farther and looks like it's going to play music, but it never connects. I suspect that it's trying to stream music but that opera doesn't listen or doesn't know what program to call to pass the stream to.
In windows I use IE6 which I guess uses windows media player to play these music streams.

Any ideas?

I've recently heard of:
Why don't you look into streamtuner. A great little app for listening to
Internet radio on Linux. 'urpmi streamtuner' or use rpmdrake
Downloading it now myself for laptop

Thanks for the reply. I use launchcast for the features available on it, but I'll take a look at streamtuner. Thanks!
