I have my server running and all is well when i don't use a intro file. If i do then, all the listner gets is the into file but then it never skips over to the music. here is the intro file line in my shoutcast server config file.

Is your introfile recorded at the same sample rate and channels as your stream?

probably not. Does that mean that i need to change the introfile to...

No. You need to record it (or convert it) in the same sample rate and channels as your stream.
A 32kbps 22kHz mono stream needs a 22kHz mono intro file.
A 128kbps 44kHz stereo stream needs a 44kHz stereo introfile.
If I recall, the bitrate is not a factor (see the commented part of the sc_serv.ini corresponding to introfile). The %D is a wild card (well, sort of) and gets replaced with the bitrate of your stream (again, see the commented part of the sc_serv.ini corresponding to introfile).
If your stream is 32kbps 22kHz mono and your introfile entry is IntroFile=D:\MP3z\MP3z\~commercials\scpromo-milk%D.mp3, then the introfile to get played will be D:\MP3z\MP3z\~commercials\scpromo-milk32.mp3
I've never setup nor used my own introfile.
