I actually just called Sharebuilder and they just told me that my account is set to reinvest dividends from my investments. So I guess I am DRIP investing??????? What is the difference from what I am doing as opposed to my going directly through a company?

That's sometimes called pseudo-dripping, in order to distinguish it from the kind of dripping done via a company's own drip plan.
