SharePoint site with no login

Is it possible to create a SharePoint site with open public access or a site where users can create their own username and password?  I want to create a site with an info form for users to fill out without having to set them up first.  Thanks

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes

one of two ways.

AS you know the application must be tied to one authentication provider
[1] Default is windows, so you will need to enable a guest type account and have the user name and password passed to the page by the page itself.

[2] Extend your application , use forms based authentication and allow anonymous login , and at that stage you should be able to configure your security , to trim down where is public and private access depending on sites etc.


Here are some pointer for more reading
