One thing I cannot seem to figure out and maybe it is a limitation of sharepoint, How do I create a user form on a page in sharepoint.  Example: and user clicks on a link to a page and a nice form with require fields comes up and a submit button for a help request.  When they hit submit it emails the form to the proper user.  I have seen alot of portals that let to you easily do this, and it is even simple enough where a average user can create their own web form as well.    Why is is so complicated, and having to tie in Info Path into it as well,  I don't want to have to have to another program installed for this to work.

Well - each list you create has a display form and edit form - what exacly do you require from the forms.
You can create a help request list with all the neccesary fields. Next create an alert for the user who should receive an e-mail when new item is created and you are done - should take you around 5 minutes - depending on the fields you need for the hel request.

I want multiple blank fields,

Name: ____________
Date: _____________

Description of Problem: ________________

SUBMIT Button ->  emails to a list of people

I want this type of veiw to show up on the actual page, I don't want them to have to download or click or the form file to open the form, nor do I want the end user to require infopath either.  Most Intranet Based Packages have them ability.

So you just need to create a list with all these fields. Then setup alerts for the people you want to receive the e-mail and you are done.
