I have need to have a online form filled out using a handheld computer at a remote location... I would like to just have the handheld hit a sharepoint site at my location... have any of you experts done this before?  my main concern is how do you format the view of the form to actually be able to see it on the small screen?  The data will be saved to a simple sharepoint list.

This is actually so easy, you'll laugh.  Simply add an "m" after the URL.  So, open a browser, and go to a url like:
Where someSharePointSite.com is the URL of a SharePoint site (doh).
This will redirect you to a mobile version of the site.  You can navigate to one of your lists, and down at the bottom of the screen, click "New Item".  There's your form!
Ok, it's not real pretty, but you can modify the mobile view if you like.

Mike, you're right that was way too easy.... you've got the points for this, but I do have another question.
I'm creating a list with a quantity, price, and total... I want total to be a calculated field, multiplying the quantity times the price, but get an error that the formula contains references to fields...  not sure how to to this....  plus, I've read a lot where when you enter a calculated field, you get a formula box, but I don't see that either....
