And being compulsive and anal, I don't trust the tax software (Quicken, etc) to do it correctly.

Actually, the TAX software (TurboTax, TaxCut, etc.) should all do this effortlessly in their planning modules. I can't vouch for the tax modules in Quicken, Microsoft Money, etc.

If you want to try this on your own, the draft version of the 2001 Schedule D should be available at the IRS web site in the tax professionals area -- http://www.irs.gov/bus_info/tax_pro/dftform2.html.

You can then follow the IRS logic as you create your spreadsheet.
