I am 25, and am wondering at the best retirement fund to set up. How much money should I put into it? At what age will I be able to touch my money?

I am considering putting 10K into an index fund (S&P 500) and keeping it there until I turn 60 or so. What about taxes though? I know that an IRA will tax me now rather than later, but does that make it worth it?
I have read (not just on this site) that index funds are the best funds there are.

Or is any type of fund not such a good idea?

If it doesn't automatically, please opt for your reply to be sent to directly into my email...

Thank you in advance,
