What do you reccomend, as far as hardware goes, for a 50 listener station at a low bitrate? regardless of connection speed.

README.TXT for SHOUTCAST SERVER 1.9.5 - December 27, 2004
Table of Contents:
If you want to broadcast to listeners, you'll need:
* 90Mhz or faster server, running one of Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, ME, Mac OS X, Sparc Solaris 2.7+, FreeBSD 4.x+, or Linux with a libc6 kernel.
* 14kB of memory for every listener you want to broadcast to (i.e. 1,000 listeners means you need 14 Megabytes of RAM), plus whatever your operating system needs for overhead, plus 1.5MB for the server's base requirements. Don't set the listener count higher than you need, it just screws things up.....

I would say use something with a processor of 1.5ghz or higher, with 256mb of RAM or higher. Shoutcast ISN'T resource intensive in general.
