"Go look at www.vanguard.com and look
around."

I have had a lot of success with VFINX (Index 500). It is down now, but from Nov 97 until Sept 2000. I got a little over 17% per year from it (438 to 712). I think that vanguard might be good for you. I recommended VFINX to my Son who is 26. Good luck. Glad to hear that you are starting early. I did not start until 36. Time is on your side.

Mike
