Stick with Fuji or Oly and I don't think you'll go far wrong.

Check the flash range - some are pathetic and useless.

You can get 4MP without compromising at all and stay in your budget. Check out this link from CNET which has the 4MP Minolta D100 for as little as $329.

The Olympus C4000 sells for less than $400 on the internet. Check www.dealtime.com for pricing and vendor rating. The C4000 is 4mp, 3X optical zoom. Has both point and shoot with manual control settings as you learn more about the camera.
