Hacking a Nintendo DS Lite

I need to get my hands on a step by step guide on how/what exactly I need to hack and mod my fiances DS. I know the new one is coming out next year but it may not be as hackable has this one is, so I bought her this one. Anyway, Looking around I have seen the DS used as a cell phone, iPod, movie player, and back up game player. I would love to know how to get some of these things working on her DS. Please advise me of the best way to go about this.

No physical modification is needed to run backups, play mp3’s or play video files. You just need a flashcard like an R4DS or a DSTT, and an appropriate micro SD memory card.

The flashcards can be bought from many retailers, I got mine from dealextreme.

I know I don’t have to physically mod anything. What I need to know is what is the easiest to use. I don’t want to spend a tremendous amount of time writing files and codes. I kind of just want to be able to drag and drop. Which of the above do you recomend for me?

Also this a brand new 2008 model DSLite does that matter?
