Looking for video baby monitor that I can monitor with handheld and computer.

We are having a baby in July and I'm hoping to find a cool video monitor solution. I want a wireless webcam over the crib and a standard handheld monitor we can use throughout the house. These are easy to find, Target even has them. However, I'd like to have more of the standard wireless webcam features. Like get the feed up on any of the many computers in our house and run the feed thru iChat or something so I can watch our brood from work.
I see two possible approaches. 1) Buy a popular camera/handheld (usually 900Mhz) and somehow catch that signal on a computer. 2) Do a complete homemade one with a standard wireless webcam and find a compatible handheld that will pick it up. I don't know how to accomplish either one though! Does anyone have any ideas?
By the way, I realize a lot of people will say a video monitor is not necessary -- I'm not asking for opinions on that issue.
