Financial Planning / Foolish 401(k)s

Just need a confirmation on my 401(k) thinking.....

Have (2) old 401(k) accounts from previous employers.

Have 401(k) at new job, but can't contribute till Jan. :(

Are these my options?:

1) close out old 401(k) plans & deposit into NEW 401. (before Jan)

2) Keep current 401 plans, and just contribute to new after Jan

3) Move old 401 funds into Rollover IRA? I have a Roth, but don't think i'm allowed to go directly from 401(k) to Roth without getting involved in a Rollover account.

4) Take distribution, pay taxes on it, and do something silly with it. (No, not seriously considering this option at all)
