I have recently rolled my 401K to an IRA. I have read all the IRS regs. and Fool discussion boards and can find no information on how much I am able to deduct (if any) from my taxes. My company never matched any amount of my contributions to the 401K so the entire amount rolled was sole contribution by me.

You can't deduct anything. Your 401(k) contributions were excluded from your income when you made them. You don't get to exclude them again when you move them to an IRA.
