    I just read the info on the page you linked above and one of the requirements is a Mac.

    Does GarageBand work on a pc (Vista)?

    1. Click on iTunes – Library
    2. Click the song you’d like to edit
    3. Locate the start and end times of the selection you want. To do this, move the iTunes playback head (at the top of iTunes) to the start of the selection and note the start time. Then move the playback head to the end of the selection and note the end (stop) time.
    4. Click on File – Get Info – Options
    5. Click on Start Time and enter the start time you noted
    6. Click on Stop Time and enter the end time you noted
    7. Click on OK
    8. Click on iTunes – Preferences – Importing
    9. In Import Using, click on AAC Encoder
    10. Click on OK
    11. Click on iTunes – Advanced – Convert Selection to AAC
    12. Right click the new AAC track and choose to find in on your computer
    13. Rename the new AAC track as a .m4r
    14. Double click the new .m4r which will open up into the ringtones section of iTunes
    15. Sync new ringtone to iphone

    Or go to "audiko.net"
    Where you can choose from ringtones available on the site or upload your own music and make ringtones and download back to your PC.

    I use myxer.com. It's has tons of free ringtones created by other users. Of you don't see anything you like, you can upload a mp3 file and make your own.

    Good Luck!

    Is there any limit as to how long that selection can be?

    Could I use a whole song as ringtone?
