I kinda priced it out in my head because I was considering doing the same thing. You'd need a front wheel ~$60, avid bb7 ~$40 and rotor ~$20. About $120 to do just the front.

I opted to just get the rockhopper disc for $100 more.

I bought a '05 RH base. After a season of riding I upgraded to Juicy 5 disc brakes. The upgrade cost me $200; pretty much just for the brakes.
I bought disc ready wheels (used) online and sold the stock ones at the same price. Same goes for the shifters.
