There are ETFs of all shapes and sizes. I would say you should stay close to the Dow Jones Total Market Index (IYY). Also, you can do a simple strategy that invests equal amounts in the 10 sectors that make up the Dow Jones TMI.

Also, for income, you might want to consider the iShares Fixed Income ETF. It pays interest monthly. I don't have the ticker, but you can go to http://ishares.com and find it. I think they only offer one.

One last thing, don't forget about going international. You might want to put a portion in international investments.
