SharePoint Foundation - Set up a Contact Form

1.  What is the best way to create a simple contact form in SharePoint?   I need only a simple form for users to enter basic contact info.   I have InfoPath Designer but am using SharePoint foundation.  The MS site indicates that you need SharePoint Enterprise to upload an InfoPath form.  Is this true?

2.  Is it possible to setup the form or site access so a user can only view their info and not that of any other user.  (This site has anonymous access)    I want to direct unknown users to the site to obtain info and to leave contact info for a call back or return email.  

Thanks

Thanks but the heather solomon site is out of date unless I am missing something.  It is focused on the old version of SharePoint and the most recient entry is dated Feb 2010.

Hello Jim2009,

By creating a contact list in SharePoint you will have the default create, edit, and view forms attached to the list that automatically add every field in the list to the form. If you want to add columns to your contact list for administrative purposes then I recommend using SharePoint Designer 2010 to make a copy of the create form attached to the list and edit it to get rid of the fields you don't want the user to see.

To only allow a user to see only their info on the contact list after creating the list go to the List Settings for the contact list and click on "Advanced Settings". There you will be able to change the Item level permissions for the list to the way you want. You can then change view settings to hide you administrative fields and prevent them from editing their information (if you don't want them to be able to see the administrative columns ever and instead require them to request a change to their information through the site some how).
