I am also a n00b in the sport of mountain biking and I posted a thread similar to this just a couple of days ago. Some good advice was posted for me. Maybe you will find it of use also

Here is a link to it:

we need to know what kind of riding you do, how hard you ride, price range, etc. etc.

The Rythm costs more than 500.

Check out this:

Its suitable for DJing as is within your price range. After DMR's Konas are as cool as hell. The wheel hubs are disc hubs, making it easy to upgrade.

I'm not sure about the price but aren't the Specialized P series bikes good for dirt jumping. A lot of people seem to like them. Kona is another good bet.
