A '99 bike should have a normal, modern 1 & 1/8" headset, so you should be able to replace it with any fork you'd like to buy. Yes, they make pneumatic forks. They are also expensive as hell. If you want to buy new, expect to spend $350-$1000. Yes, just for the fork. Make sure you buy a NON-TAPERED(aka straight) steerer tube version of the fork.

Rockshok makes nice forks. Fox is the other big one. Manitou still makes forks. All of them are expensive. Forks are very much a "you get what you pay for" item.

There is always the choice to go rigid as well for significantly cheaper.
