"I have an account with Charles Schwab, and called them about the fees for Roth IRA. They will waive the fee if you do an automatic investment each month into your Roth IRA account through your bank. I would call them again to confirm."

I checked online - they do offer to waive the fee (of $29/year) if you do an automatic investment. I'm not sure that it's worth the hassle for me (I just want to plunk down $4000 for 1998 and buy 1 stock) and Schwab also charges $30/trade. I think Datek might be best for me (even at $45/year for the fee, $10/trade puts me even w/ Schwab and I already use them, which is a big plus).

Another poster suggested AmeriTrade, but I've recently read about people having trouble with them (on the Dell board).

Thanks to all for your help!
