I have several real audio files I want on a web page which, when clicked on, dump text to the screen. I need a way to do psudo streaming of these files without buying a real server or other program.

Have you encoded the files with the Real Audio Encoder?  Does your ISP support Real Audio Streaming?  I have real audio streaming files at my mother's ministry page and we do not have a real audio server....

The files were encoded with the G2 version of the real encoder. There is supposed to be a way of tricking a browser into thinking it is a straming audio file even if it isn't.

In order to make real audio files stream make a file with the extension .ram

the file should have a single line like so:
http://yourserver.com/pathtoyourfile/yourfile.ra

my isp required a link like this:
pnm://yourserver.com/pathtoyourfile/yourfile.ra

you put a link to the yourfile.ram file instead of the .ra file and if your server supports streaming files this should work..make sure that the .ram and .ra have the same name..

Here are some URLS at RealAudio that discusses this in depth:
