<<Thanks for your help. You told me a few things I didn't know. Luckily, it's worth more than $5K. My new company uses Merril Lynch (read: $$$ Fees)since the owner is a long time friend of the broker. I don't know whether they accept rollovers or not at this point. I think I'll go Self-Directed. It's easier that way and I get control.>>

I set up a self-directed IRA with my online broker (DLJdirect). They don't charge the $35/yr IRA fee if I trade 3 times per year. I've been happy with my other accounts with them, and this one is working out nicely. BTW, boo hiss Merrill Lynch. My father's trust fund was with them. Big fees, but they didn't keep an eye on what was happening.
