I prevent people deleting or editing the files by having them on a read-only server.

Maybe use a sacrificial laptop to control Winamp? Nothing to delete.

I am still not sure what you would want your guests to "fool around in winamp". There are a lot of settings to also mess up. This is why I was trying to get you to think through what you would actually want to let the guests do.

Some wireless keyboard\mouse sets include remote controls. Or separate numeric keypads. One of these could be mapped to keyboard shortcuts for DrO's "limited interface" suggestion.

Basically, you need a custom skin for a custom interface. Then just reduce the available buttons and menus to the actions you want your guests to mess with.
