I think you're under a misapprehension that may change your decision. Money added via rollover to an IRA has nothing to do with the $2000 annual contribution limit ...

So, I'm in Barnes & Noble last nite, perusing the investing tomes, and I come across that very fact! Yikes!! Needless to say, I contacted by IRA Administrator this morning and reinstated the Rollover-to-Roth conversion ...

Your philosophy is a little unusual (around Fooldom) in that you're trying to get money into a 401(k) from an IRA ...

Not any more!!!

There's no rush. Take your time, get a firm grasp of all your options, and then make your decision. That's Foolish. Good luck, and keep us posted! --Bob

I think I need to add a small disclaimer to my lost post ... before reading the Motley Fool Investment Workbook a few months back I didn't know a thing about investing, and, I've still got a loooong way to go ... but like my investments, at least I've begun!!
Thanks again for the valuable feedback, Bob ... hopefully all of this will help other Fools avoid folly ...
:) David
