If you're converting a rigid fork, 1" head bike to suspension, you might want to consider the Suntour R-3000 sold by nycbikes.com It's NOT a great fork, but it's a heckuvalot cheaper than $100 (about $35 with shipping) and it's similiar to the RST.
If your bike has a 1 1/8 head, unthreaded steerer, you would be much better off looking on ebay for a recent OEM unit removed from a one year old bike for an upgrade. As an example, Rockshox Judy's are selling for well under $100.
