If you do this, does the conversion amount count against the $3000 Roth IRA contribution limit for the year(2002)?

Unrelated question:

I have a Coca Cola DRiP plan in a custodial(UTMA) account. In between when I had the broker put the certificate in our name and when the paperwork to enroll in the plan went through, I received a dividend check. How do I treat this money?

The KO rep said I can't use the dividend check to buy shares(directly anyway), and that since the income had been declared on a 1099-DIV, I could just put it in my account. True?

If not, is it a problem if I did deposit it into my checking account and used the money to repurchase more shares under their voluntary share purchase option?

Thanks for any help.
