with (1) 100mbit connection, and streaming media simultaneously at 300kb (kilobits), your connection itself can sustain 330 simultaneous connections, if my math is correct... however I never majored in math.
That is a theoretical connection max...
It's not about your hardware, but your connection that is the limitation here. Your HDD can support (I am guessing it is a ATA and not SATA drive), anywhere from 66-133 (depends on the ATA type) Megabytes per second.. constant data transfer.

you'd be pushing to get 300+ connections... a lot of dependancies... as BB eluded, there is actual Bandwidth per connection allocated, then HD access, CPU load, Streaming application settings ... etc etc...
With only 1 drive it will be tough. I guess the only real way would be to set up streams one at a time, and keep going until they start dropping frames etc...
