Customing the Edit Node Experience?

Use case: I've created a custom content type with a variety of fields and widgets.

I want some privaledged users to be able to edit these nodes, but not get distracted by several fields they will not need.

So to provide a slimmer version of the edit mode...is it something I should do with Views, or perhaps create a custom tpl file?

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.

You could try the Field Permissions module to specify which fields are shown to which roles. If you need more control than that, you could write a custom module that implements hook_form_alter() to alter the form.
