your best bet would be to take it to a local bike shop, or check out some of the Mtn bike forums

Can you post a picture of your hub?.......Looking at the hub on your bike,if it is disc compatible,the hub will appear open and flat with mounting holes instead of tapering down to the axle.

Ill get some pictures tomorrow and post them.

It looks like a normal hub but then it has a really big bare spot on the opposite side of the chain ring gears

just look on the opposite side of the cassette gears on the rear hub, if there is 6 tapped holes there then you can slap a disk on there,

Hub, Bub

Do you have a front disk brake already?
The front brake does most of the stopping.

Check this out - a nice, but entry level Mavic disk wheel set:

You could go ghetto tubeless:

Tubeless tires rock - if you run them with sealer (like Stan's) you will almost never get a flat!

probably not worth the upgrade on a mongoose. no offense but going to disks will set you back more than your bike. A cheap wheelset will be around $150 and decent, worthwhile mechanical discs (Avid BB5) will be around $200.

X2. Also depends on how much stopping power you need. My Shimano XT "V" brakes are more than enough to throw me over the bars.

Disk brakes are pretty much over kill, there nice for sure, but depending on what type of riding you do, you probably don't need them, unless your into downhill. They make some pretty wicked V brake pads, that work very well in wet, muddy conditions. IMO I wouldn't waste my money on mechanical disks anyway, especially if your bike already has decent V brakes. Even LX is a great product and you could probably find a set for less then $100. The other thing you need to check is weather your bike frame has a disk brake mount.

i have the Crossride rimset (badass!)

if you have never had an Oh Shit! moment you could not stop with the brakes you have, i personally would not go with discs.

my V-brakes have never put me in a situation were i wished i had more.
cantilevers....different story

my 2¢ (of course i live in North Texas)

I didn't realize they even made the crossrides anymore. I had those when they first came out and they were great wheels.

You will get better performance for the money with an upgrade of your rim brakes. Don't even bother upgrading the mongoose.

You'll also need to make sure you have the mounts for the caliper on the frame

prob the best money you could spend on that bike would be to upgrade the fork.

cambriabike.com
pricepoint.com
jensonusa.com
wheelworld.com (takes paypal)

they all have some good deals on forks
