free music for kids?

I'm looking for free, legal kid's music for my three year old little girl. Ideally mp3s of stuff that is past copyright, like old folk music, kids classics, or anything else that might appeal to a three-year-old who likes to dance. [more inside]

Modded XBox

Recently The Howie linked to a place that sells modded Xboxen. My question is--if I get one of these modded boxes, can I just use it as a turnkey solution for running a little dual-boot computer that can emulate a bunch of game platforms, play my mp3s with a decent interface, and play quicktime movies that I've ripped with a reasonable amount of clarity? (oh yeah, and save xbox games to the HD). Or, is it one of those deals where I *could* do most of that stuff, but I'd spend a heck of a lot of time messing with config files and otherwise slowly morphing into a Eunuchs Guru...

Or would I just be better off getting a cheap little mini-itx computer and putting an lcd monitor on it?

MP3 Player for Ibook

I'm looking for a 256mb flash mp3 player for my Ibook, for about $100. I'm happy to take recommendations, but what would be even cooler is if someone has the link to an online database that lets you search for units that will mount as a hard drive on OS X without having to use someone's proprietary, usually crappy, software.

What wget configuration do I need to grab only mp3s, courteously?

mp3 blogs: Say I'm reading an mp3 blog that links to several external sites hosting legal mp3s. I'm running os x. What wget configuration do I need to use to grab the mp3s in a given entry that are hosted elsewhere, do so in a courteous, non-hogging manner, and not grab the html or graphics?

I've been trying:

wget -r -l2 wc -A mp3, Mp3 -R html, jpg http://mp3blog.com

But it isn't working. I'd like to throttle the bandwidth down to so I don't crush anyone's servers. Thanks for any tips.
