<< A little wet behind the ears here but can anyone tell me the best way to start a Roth Ira? Banks seem limited as to what they invest in. Perhaps a discount broker, but which one? How do you know which ones are discount vs. full service? Any suggestions or recommendations? >>

My suggestion, because of the types of questions you're asking and the nearness of April 17 (assuming you're talking about a 1999 contribution), would be an index mutual fund. You could then take some time to study the 13 Foolish Steps for investing, which would help you answer your questions. You can roll the account to a brokerage when you know what you're doing.
