Have you read the Roth IRA section on Fool? That should be a good source of info.

I'd also recommend the IRA section in They're both good for easy to understand info.

What's good about SM is that it also has something called an Asset Allocation worksheet - a java applet that allows you to put in some of your investment info and it suggests a good mix for diversification, i.e. 25% large cap stocks, 5% cash, etc.

Good luck and don't just rush into anything because you feel pressured. Do several weeks/months of homework and then you can be happy with your decisions.
