If the bike has disc brake mounts: no problem.

It is much better and cheaper to buy the bike to the spec you want than to upgrade later.
Do you have caliper mounts on your forks and chainstay?
If so, what disc diameter are they set for?
Do you have disc ready hubs?
If so, what bolt diameter and number are they?
If not, you will need to buy new wheels as well as the disc and caliper sets.
Visit your local lbs and ask for a quote.

I know this post is old but but in case anyone else is wondering I just got one of these http://www.choppersus.com/store/product/307/Disc-Brake-Bracket-Billet/ from ChoppersUS to add disc brakes to My Schwinn DelMar. You can get a set of disc wheels with tires for around 120 on e-bay. Its not too cheap but it is possible, I agree try to find a bike with everything You want on it already it is cheaper that way.
Cheers
