pls files are what shoutcast uses. If you go to shoutcast.com and pick the station of choice, when you click the "tune in" button to the left it loads a shoutcast.pls file to your hard drive or if you so specify starts your favorite music client. If you look in the .pls file you will find info like you were talking about, like the ip address of the stream. Normally, I just save the link to my home directory, then start Xmms up and go to open file, then choose that shoutcast.pls file, then hit play.
It is in fact connecting to the stream, but gives me the found no sound card error.
