[[And I offer this opinion, Why not roll your 401k from your previous employer to
a "conduit ira" and don't co-mingle any other money with it thereby leaving the
option to roll to the new employer's plan a possibility in the future if you chose to
do so. This way offers the most flexibility, IMHO. Even if you like the choices
inside the new employers plan chances are you can get the same mutual fund
with the ira. Bryan]]

Sorry...I guess I didn't make myself clear. Option #2 was esentially what you are describing here.

Thanks for the clarification...
