mp3 files as Windows System files...

First of all, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong spot. I couldn't search for mp3 or .wav. Merge or lead me in the direction of a previous thread if this has been covered...thanks.

We just got a new computer, and I am trying to change some of the system sounds (start up, shut down, etc), but XP only allows .wav files as far as I can tell. Is there a way bypass this and make the system allows .mp3 files for these commands, or do I just need to convert the mp3s into .wavs? If so, what's the best program for that?

Thanks alot for any help, info, or direction y'all can give me. I really appreciate it.
