K2 Zed Sport Bike '06 for about $220.00
or 2006 Motobecane 400HT for about $330.00
Does anyone have any advice on these bikes??? I'm a beginner who will be riding on medium difficulty terrain trails.

Welcome to the forums Matt. I figured some links might help you out in responses, so I've added links:
K2 Zed Sport Bike '06 for about $220.00 (http://www.rei.com/outlet/product/48137874.htm)
2006 Motobecane 400HT for about $330.00 (http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/motobecane/motobecane_400HT.htm)
If you don't find anything on Craigslist, I'd suggest the Motobecane of all you've mentioned.

since you are a beginner, at that price, get yourself a good hardtail. Im sensing the word Hardrock coming up :p

Hehehe, that's a job for me.
Get a Hardrock!
K anywhoo wheelhot is correct, for your price range you will be much better off getting a HT with higher end components. Does not have to be a Hardrock but I strongly recommend them.:D

the frame was super strong and very good for money. :)

to the OP - K2s are decent bikes for the price, they do a better job than a good number of companies in that lower price range, i feel
