Can anyone tell me how gains are calculated when w/drawing funds from 401k's?. If I roll over my account from one employer to another, and so on,how do I keep track of the gains? Also, all of the funds are taxable, i.e. pre-tax.

Keep in mind that a rollover is not the same as a withdrawal. A rollover would not have any tax consequences as it would be a direct transfer of assets from one qualified plan to another. A withdrawal would be taxed at your regular tax rate.
