loose front end?

My bike has felt like the front end is really "loose" for some reason... I let a buddy ride my bike and he said it feels really loose too. What can I check out to figure out the problem, if it is a problem? I am going to make sure all the bolts are tight tomorrow. Could this just be how the forks are from maybe too many wheels or something from the previous owner? Would/will I have to replace them soon?

Can you be a little more specific as to what feels loose - for instance does it feel like the front tire is wandering around under you, or is it more one fork leg feels weak and is pitching the front end to one side on bumps?
