looking for fork advice

Hi all. I've been scouring the internet trying to find a fork for touring use. I'm converting a hardtail jamis for what it's worth. Can anyone recommed a steel 1-1/8" fork that has rack mounting fittings? More importantly, where can I buy such a fork? I figured e-bay would solve my problem, but I couldn't find a fork to fit the bill. Thanks for any help!

Jon

Nashbar has a cyclocross fork in both steel and carbon that is somewhat appropriate. Has disc mounts.

If you need suspension corrected go for the Surly 1x1, kona project 2, or a tange or dimension.

These don't have mid fork brazeons but this doesn't stop the guys at Rivendell.
