You might get more help if you could explain a little more. Does it gradually build up or is it sudden @ 20mph? Does it start once the trans shifts out of 1st? IIRC I saw something a/b certain 02s having caliper problems or something to that effect.. Sound anything like bad brakes? Does it change when you turn? I'm not telling you to answer that stuff.. just ideas to explain it better. Wish I was a mechanic.. *shrugs*

When you hear the noise, keep up the speed and press the brake pedal slightly with your left foot to see if it's in the brake system e.g. pad. Also check pads to be certain they are not worn. Some pads came with wear sensors. Nothing more than a strip of metal, which will contact the rotor when the pad wears down to unsafe levels and if the rotor has minimal runout, the strip could make contact every revolution.
