Thanks for the info Knight427.

I realize that my employer's 401k fund offerings might have more than the 2 index funds I listed. I noticed that Morningstar.com lists FUSEX index fund as a "large blend". When I looked up another fund (FMAGX) it also lists it as a "large blend" and has about 95% stock and 5% cash.

So I guess my next question is what exactly defines an Equity Based Index fund? Are funds that primarily hold stock considered index based funds? Or does is it funds that hold primarily stocks that compose the S&P 500? (or some other index).

I'm assuming the latter is the correct answer. If so, how do I know which are equity index based funds? Purely on the fund's description?
