    i've noticed that safari doesn't allow me to save a mp3 file to my desktop. does anyone know a way around this.

    If you're running Leopard then it will be going to your Downloads stack.

    Go Preferences > General > Set Download To > Other > Desktop

    Just tried it, works fine. Right click (or Ctrl+Click) on the link to the file, and click "Download Linked File". In Leopard it will put it in your Downloads folder, in Tiger it will go on your Desktop.

    Well you could simply keep the Download window on screen, and watch for when it finishes. If your using Leopard, and have it download to your Downloads folder, the Downloads Stack will bounce in your Dock when it is done also.
