I agree with you Steve. It's an inside wall, not a bearing wall, so the 24" oc should be fine. I would also consider using 2 x 3's instead of 2 x 4's. If you are uncomfortable with the joists running the other way, if you can get under the floor, you can always run 2 x 6's (assuming your floor joists are 2 x 6's) between the current joists for extra support under the wall.
