What is the width of your dropouts? (The distance between the two points the rear wheel attaches to your bike, where the axle sits)
What make model and year bike are we talking about here?
130mm spacing is the road standard. There are not a lot of hubs made with 130mm spacing designed for discs. At least, that is the impression I have. Someone will probably get on here and tell me I am full of it in about 5 minutes.
135mm spacing is the MTB standard. A lot of hubs are made with this spacing and disk mounts. 29er wheels would be a good choice.
So, based on your frame, you have more or less options.
Although, some frames (Surly, others) are built with 132.5 mm spacing so you can use either/both(but not at the same time)
I hope that helps.
Additionally, the Mechanics forum is a great source of info for these sorts of questions.
