My wife quit her job over a year ago. She has $5000 still sitting the company's 401k plan. How does one go about rolling this money over into an IRA and what tax considerations does she need to take into account?

Ideally what we'd like to do is set up a self directed IRA with my current online broker Datek. Any help would be greatly apprectiated.
