If anyone could tell me of a distro like what my friend had, I'd appreciate it.

I did that myself with an iRiver iHP-140 I had. The project was RockBox. They support a lot of devices so it might be worth checking out, but not all devices are compatible.
If it had been an iPod there would also be the option of using iPodLinux instead of RockBox.

I also just found a project called Sansalinux, that seems to be a branch off of iPodLinux, but I don't know if its as developed as the Rockbox project is.
Thanks again for the help!
