BACKGROUND
I am very new to the investment game and to taking control of my financial future. I am 30 years old and partners in a small consulting business with three employees. I am completely free of debt (no credit card, loans, auto, etc. )We just (April '98) opened a Simple-IRA that allows us to put a max of $6,000 in yearly with a match of 3% from the company. I am looking to invest an additional $6,000 this year.

My question?

I would hate to invest ALL of this $6,000 in a taxable account if I do not have to. Any suggestions? Can I invest $2,000 in A ROTH?

I am currently seeking a house or condo to purchase within the next 4-6 because I am renting at $800 /mo and this is not foolish!
