a new frame question

i have a question, i have a hard rock comp with disc brakes

and i have started to want a full suspension bike, and i was thinking about swapping the frame and buying a new fork for jumping, this is the frame i want
http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/149...-SPV-4-Way.htm

and my question is, would everything actually fit together, i mean it as, for jumping, would i have to buy anything other than a new fork to make a good full suspension bike?

first of all, i wouldnt use an xc frame for jumping seeing as xc frames are really light and in most circumstances sacrifice weight for strength. you would most likely have to buy a new front dearailleur, seatpost, and bottom bracket but otherwise, everything should fit. you might want to buy new cables/cable covers as well, because it might have a different routing system for them.
good luck.

If you are going for jumping, save up alittle bit more and get a p1 or p2.
