I established Roth first year (1998) available - at Vanguard. Followed this with a conversion. My question is this: if I put my yr 2000 Roth contribution of $2000 into a stock purchase with Waterhouse online, isnt it aged (lack of a better term)2 years already, aiming at the 5 year requirement for tax free withdrawal, by virtue of my original contribution at Vanguard? How does Waterhouse know this should I choose to withdraw it first? How does IRS know?

Thank you very much.
