Looking for some guidance…

I'm planning on opening a Roth IRA for my wife and myself this tax year with my discount broker ($7.95 a trade). What is the best investment approach for investing the $2000 in each account, i.e. Foolish 4, buy and hold, one stock, etc.? I have until 4/15/2000 to fund the accounts, right?

We are currently contributing what equals to $9000 a year to our 457 retirement plans (Deferred Compensation Plans). Should I focus on maxing-out these plans ($8000 each) or should I go ahead with the Roth's.
