Budget first-lens wide-angle options for a Canon 350D purchase? I'm looking at buying the latter, and want to find the most bang for few bucks on the former.

I'm considering getting a 350D, and for my first (and for a while only) lens, I'm interested in something relatively wide and fast. However, I get the impression that's not a very economical proclivity—especially the "fast" part.
What are my options if I want to spend less than $300, or less than $150, on a lens that at least trends wide-ish?
It's my understanding that a 50mm lens (acquirable for $80-ish dollars? new) behaves more like an 80mm for a non-SLR; I'm worried that my desire to get more than portraits would be stymied by such a lens. I want something wider.
