Linux Server Easy Install?

Hello all. New to the forums here so I suppose I may get flamed for not reading more but I am hoping someone will hear me out and be able to offer a little help.

I have spent ther better part of a week reading about the Shoutcast server and comparing this to other options avaiable to stream live audio over the net. From my reading I can gather that Shoutcast is the most reasonable (as it's free!) but I am having a few problems in understanding if I can set this up properly on our linux based dedicated server. I did find install instructions for both windows based and linux based servers but it seems in order for me to install this on our linux based server I will need to use shell commands to get it running? I am a little confused on that part. Has anyone set this up on a Linux server and mind offering a little walk thru?

Here is what our server looks like in case that helps:
* P4 2.8GHz Processor
* 512MB RAM
* 80GB SATA HDD
* 250GB Data Transfer

Thanks in advance & I apologize if I posted this in the wrong place. (I did originally under the Winamp section.)
