I have a form that has four fields.  At this time I have it pulling the data from four seperat list - which I'm not certain is the best way to do it.

Here is what I've referred to when building it. The problem is that I don't need a lot of seperate list, and two of the fields needs to be auto filled and the user should not be able to edit them.

field "a"  
field "b"   multiple options based on field "a"
field "c"   auto fillled based on field "a"  // needs to be uneditable
field "d"   auto fillled based on field "a" // needs to be uneditable

Any help???, please!

I would use spservices by marc Anderson. Http://spservices.codeplex.com from there check out the Getlistitem and or cascadedropdown. Read the documentation and look at examples. If you need more help I can write you a sample script. I did something similar to you using spservices getlistitem to pull from the other list and then based on that value it would populated the rest of the fields and then I set the fields as read only with some javascript.
