Hi, David!
You have to be aware o of the fact that Freeamp does not substitute
Winamp, unfortunately. Yes, there is some initial error at startup, which
says that you don't have ALSA installed or something like that. If you
have more errors, it might be due to the fact that you don't have certain
necesary libraries installed. Please quote the errors. Otherwise,
Freeamp's usage is very simple:

freeamp [whatever]

Unfortunately, there is no way to have ACB Radio play automatically from a
web browser. The reason for that is that .pls files are sent as a straight
textand you cannot tell Linux to treat it otherwise. So, what one of the
listers suggested is to save .pls files with Lynx and then load them with
Freeamp on the command line. It works pretty fine.
