All information about your 401k, including borrowing from it, should be available from your 401k provider - ask in your HR department. in general, people here do not suggest to borrow from your 401k, because you will have to pay it back, with interest, within an agreed period (intersy will be double-taxed). If you decide to switch jobs, it has to be paid in full immediately, plus you loose investment opportunity (the money is out of the plan = investment.

Read thru this board, but first - check where is your 401k money - they cannot "hang" somewhere... go to HR department, ask for 401k prospectus or broshure, find out who is your 401k provider... haven't you ever received statements regarding your 401k contributions?
