<<I'm new to this so forgive me if this question has been asked. I want to put $2000 into a IRA account but am not sure wether to make it a regular or Roth account. What is the difference between the two and what critera does one use when selecting? Any help offered would be greatly appreciated. >>

There is a TON of information on how traditional IRAs work and how Roth IRAs work in the Taxes FAQ area. In additional, in the Personal Finance area there is also a TON of information regarding the similarities, differences, and what not regarding these two different types of IRAs.

Finally, I also discuss them in great detail in The Motley Fool Investment Tax Guide 2000...available in Foolmart. Might be something that you can use as a reference.
