(use the expression box to make the fields read-only).  Disable the submit button on the infopath menu bar and create a submit button on the form that they have to use.

On the submit, create a rule that switches the view to the read-only view and switches the submit button on the form to a button that only closes the form.

hope this helps
cheers

With InfoPath 2007 you can set an entire view read-only in view properties.  So copy your main view and then set readonly.  In 2003 you would need to change your fields to expression boxes or set each field readonly.
