I apologize very deeply if this has been covered. I pop on this board and lurk now and again but a lot of this stuff is over my head. Here's my deal: My company deals with Fidelity for our 401k. I get 3% from the job if I put 6% in, which I do. I've been here a little over a year and rolled over my pension from a previous job. In Jan 02 I am upping my contribution to 8%, and will then up it 2% every year until I max out. I'm 25. These are my choices of funds:

Equity Growth Fund
Equity Income Fund
Balanced Fund
Growth Opportunities Fund
Overseas Fund
Intermediate Bond Fund

At the moment I have 40% in Equity Growth, 30% in Equity Income and 30% in Balanced. What I want to know is this an okay balance or should I move some of it around as I hopefully have 35-40 years to go before retirement. Thanks!
