I recently moved my company sponsored 401k into a rollover ira (I left the company). Somehow, out of the roughly 100k, about 2k of the money was already taxed and didn't qualify to go into the ira. Instead, Fidelity put that into a cash account.

And just to clarify, the cash account is outside of the IRA, correct? If so it sounds to me as if that money is available to you to do what you like without is being a taxable event other than any gains that the money has accumulated since the account was established.
After tax money is not all that uncommon in 401k plans.
