You don't really want to know :wink:
Because those 600mm, F/4.0 monsters are incredibly expensive!
Please give us a buget so we can focus a little better in our attempts to give you good advice...

I was thinking of buying Canon Rebel XT
or the Nikon D40.But I was leaning
more toward the Rebel XT.

My budget is about 300$ to 650$. Thankz again for your posts.

I'm thinking of getting the Nikon AF-S 70-200mm F/2.8 VR ED, will it be worth all it's money for indoor and outdoor sports?

Yes. I'm in the middle of writing a real-life appraisal of the 70-200. You'll find it here: http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3555

I do quite a lot of indoor dancesport, as well as event photography. The 2.8 is useful. It will make your D50 incredibly front heavy though. It does balance well with the D200 and battery grip set up I have. Even on the D80 and grip it's front heavy.
