You seem very knowledgeable about 401k/403b rollovers and general IRA info so I have some more questions that I wasn't able to find in the fool.

1) Is there a good/bad/doesn't matter time to roll over monies from a previous employer's 401k/403b into a Rollover IRA (I'm thinking of market fluctuations, etc.)?

2) Do you have to first roll over into a Rollover IRA before converting into a Roth IRA? What are the restrictions regarding this?

3) About the first time home buyers $10,000 withdrawal without penalty exception, should I convert my existing Traditional IRA into a Roth IRA before I take the $10,000 withdrawal to avoid paying taxes on the withdrawal?

Your insights will be greatly appreciated.
