I am looking to purchase my first home in August of 2002 and I am trying to determine how much money I will have for my downpayment.

I currently have $2000 in a Roth IRA (2000 tax year) and I am looking to deposit another $2000 for the 2001 tax year and possibly more for 2002. Can I use any of this money as a qualified withdrawal for my first-time home purchase? Can I use all of it including earnings?

None of this is converted, all directly deposited. Please help
