Disc brake mounts on a hardrock sport

Does anyone know if i have disc brake mounts on my bike. Are they the 2 holes on my fork and the 2 holes on the back of my bike. If i got disc brakes would i have to get new hubs etc. I was thinking of getting some bb7's.

Yup. Your frame is deisc ready, but your hubs aren't. Might have better luck just picking up a new wheelset, rather then getting new hubs and relacing the wheels. You could do that though if you have the right tools and know how to true a wheel.
