I can not give you any specific advise, but how about I point you in the right direction. There is a mutual funds board on Fool, and $$ how-to guide on picking mutual funds, and a whole page dedicated to Foolish Mutual Fund information (http://www.fool.com/school/mutualfunds/mfsem/mf.htm).

Your should be able to obtain prospectuses for the funds in your plan. Most look like public funds rather than institutional, so you can look them up using Morningstar and check their ratings. Use the educational tools to determine what aspects of the funds are important to you (past performance, expense ration, rating, market cap, index, segmentation), then see how the funds stack up.

This is the approach I have used and I think my 401K losses have been lessened for the effort.
