You have asked a BIG question, and we don't know all your specifics. However, if your 401k has a long time to grow, you could do a lot worse than the following:
15% Money Market
15% International Equity Fund
65%-70% S&P 500 Fund
5%-0% Sears Stock Fund

I put some company stock in, since you ought to know if the business is worth investing in. Also, if there's a match, you might be obligated to hold some of it in company stock. I like to keep the MM fund for when buying opportunities arise. (Do you have easy switching posibilities?) Others have suggested 100% equities, which can also be good if your money has a long time horizon.
