Not an issue this year or ever again:

It looks like you'll be filing 1040EZ, 1040A, or 1040.  Enjoy the paper.

am i right in thinking then that you dont get a 1040 copy or anything, i didnt know if i just misplaced it or something, what do you do just the irs for a cpoy?  do you know if these things the irs calls transcripts are acceptable for this stuff?

You're going to use your 2005 numbers to fill out the FAFSA.  You shouldn't need to get pre-2005 taxes unless the school specifically wants them.
