1) I don't know much about the Roth IRA except for the basic tax differences between it and the normal IRA and the $2000/yr limit. Any pointers to information I can print out and read at my leisure would be appreciated.

2) If I open a RIRA with Merril Lynch (hypothetically), is it simple to switch it to another broker (full-service or discount) later? I will soon be moving at least part of my money to a discount broker for my stock trading.

3) I know there are a lot of options for managing/what you put into an IRA. I'm interested in completely determining what stocks go in. What other options are there? (basic info, I suppose)
