I have a sharepoint site and I would like a webpart to display the contents of a view of a list without all the other wrapper around it.  What is the best way to do this.  The List is from a different site.

If you create a custom list but cannot see it in web part list, try choosing Advanced Web Part Gallery and Options (bottom right of that screen).  Your custom list should show there.

If you want more control over the display of the web part, you have 2 options. First, you can create custom views (hiding fields, sorting, filtering, grouping, totals) in the list itself, and once you've inserted the web part on your page, you can choose which view you want the web part to display.  If you want even more options, you can use SharePoint Designer to insert a Data View on the page and there, you have more options, such as conditional formatting.

Good luck.

That's OK - this should help:  http://sharepointgeorge.com/2009/display-sharepoint-list-site-data-view-web-part/

If the list is in a different site collection, this might help:  http://mssharepointtips.com/tip.asp?id=957
