That helps a lot.
I use streamripper to record from the internet.
So that's a good tool for recording.
Let's hope vinux 4.0 will be out very soon.

The problem is likely that Vinux is based on an older version of Ubuntu, so some of the latest advancements in accessibility, most notably with qt applications, are likely not available in Vinux. Most gtk-based apps should just work though.

Either way, you will likely need to download the playlist file for the station you want to listen to, and save it to your computer. Then you can just type something like
> mplayer -quiet -playlist something.pls
> vlc something.m3u
