Pannier Advice and Recommendations?

I'm riding a GT Avalanche 2.0 on my commute - it's not ideal, but it's what I have. I don't really have the cash or space for anything else at the moment. At present I am carrying everything I can in a Camelbak, though soon I will need to start carrying more with me (term time - I work at a college).

My commute is about 12 miles, and I figured panniers would do the job. However for the life of me I cannot seem to find any that will fit. The bike isn't full suspension, but I don't see anywhere for the rack to be attached near the hub of the wheel. Most bikes seem to have extra eyelets where bolts could be passed through - this one doesn't.

Am I being exceptionally stupid here, or would I be better off thinking again? The other alternative would be a Beam rack, though I'm a little nervous about how secure they would be.

Any tips... and even better, pointers towards good racks?
