Welcome to Webmasterworld [webmasterworld.com]
sorry to dissapoint you, but by the time You or me get access to the stock (if and when google IPO) then the big boys will already have had their fun.
Google in my opinion will be 1 of those rare picks, where investors will invest Emotionally rather than Rationally.

well what about the most recent IPO's, netgear, red envelope, etc, you mean even if i wanted to participate in those it would be harder. your telling me it will be hard for me, nearly impossible. I want to know why? Can someone explain why I cannot be part of it. I know the wealthier will get a hold of it, but not every peice of it.

Ok another quaestion. Since the chances of getting into the IPO look dim, the first day of trading is when to buy right? hopefully it will not surge up too much even though it looks like it will. Even if it does, we can buy it on the first day of trading like a regular stock? I know these are simple questions but, ive never participated in an IPO
Thanks for your patience.

I just wrote a long and detailed answer to the why part of your question, but i erased it (happy to email it to you later) The "what do I do" answer in my opinion (Series 7 broker) is get a margin account - watch the stock rise the first day and short it (sell first) - When the profit takers sell off and the stock comes back down, buy it back. Now you own the stock and made a good margin.
