Why is it bad for a mutual fund to have too many assets?

I keep reading on morningstar and other finance sites about how "such and such a mutual fund is getting too bloated with assets," and that this is especially a problem for funds that focus on small-cap stocks. And I see that Vanguard and many other companies have closed funds to new investors–even Vanguard’s Windsor II, which focuses on huge corporations, has restricted new investors. Let’s say a mutual fund purchases more that 50% of a company, why is that bad? Isn’t that what Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway does?

    Is there any risk involved in putting money in money market account?

    I know money market account is not isured by FDIC. I will have about 300K to invest but since the stock market is really volatile right now, I like to start investing slowly. I am planning to put some money in money market account at Vanguard. Their money market account have a slightly higher return. I also want to buy some mutual funds that Vanguard offers in the future.
    But I am just a little concerned about putting all the money in just one account. Any thought? What kind of risk shoud I think about? Should I go with CD or Bond?
