<<Yes, Fidelity has a vested interest in preventing the plans that it administers from adopting equity index funds. It is sad that Fidelity is putting its interests ahead of its fiduciary duties to the plan participants, but it is a cruel world out there.>>

I'm a little confused about this- Fidelity manages my company's 401k and I have most of my contributions going to what they call the "Spartan US Eauity Index Fund", ticker FUSEX. This is supposed to mirror the S&P 500, as far as I know. Give it a shot, maybe you have access to this fund too.

Good luck-
