To correct my mistake I'll add that on PocketPC you can use Windows media
player to listen to the stream, it's incuded with every PDA. On PalmOS I
looked for some player capable of playing network streams this spring but
couldn't find any. Maybe some has been released since.
On any Linux PDA (Yopi...) You will find many applications to do this.

I have no experience on running Softsqueeze on a linux PDA but that seems
the most appropriate OS to do so.
