I did pretty much the same thing. I have a nice Univega road bike and a cheapy Schwinn MTB from Wally World. I am now using the Schwinn for commuting since I can go off the road and not worry too much about damaging my bike.
I bought some cheapo slicks from Wally World and put those on it along with a new wheel for the back that has a quick release on it. For $200 I've got an ideal commuter. I've put almost 900 miles on this thing so far and the only thing I've had to do is replace one tire and tube due to a piece of glass.
