I remember seeing something about making withdrawls from a 401K for 'emergency purposes'. Is this different from the mechanism for borrowing from your 401K (which you pay back)?

Also, borrowing from your 401K is done through your employer. What if you have large portions of 401K rolled over to institutions like e-Trade? Is there any way to borrow from these funds?
