I just read joelcorley's response and like it the best. FamFunds seems like a good fund but it's in the midcap blend and I'm not sure I would base my Roth on it. The other funds I mentioned in the previous post have a number of selections...

TIAA-CREF - 38 funds - phone: 800-223-1200
T.Rowe Price -85 funds - phone: 800-638-5660
USAA - 32 funds - phone: 800-382-8722

I would go with these personally because you can diversify a bit more. I'd start out with a 500 index or total stock market index fund as a core fund then build from there. Later you might add some international and small cap for more diversity. I'm not saying the FamFunds isn't a good fund but I don't think I'd have it as my core fund and Famfunds doesn't have a great selection yet. hth.
