I understand that the conversion and contribution is different. But, if I add $4000 (from 2007 limit) to this rollover IRA, and I decide to convert this to ROTH later on, doesn't that mean that I'd pay taxes on $7600 instead of on just $3600?

Why not make your 2007 contribution to a Roth IRA and eliminate the middle man?
