Keeping it simple with a D50 you need a macro lens without an aperture ring to get auto focus to work.
The Nikon macro lenses to chose from are the 60mm 2.8 G, the 105 VR G, or the 85mm f3.5 G. The 85mm G is a DX lens - the others are good for FX bodies too.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.
