The excellent Gravity Forms plugin makes this extremely easy. It's not free (starts at $39), but I highly recommend it. I am not affiliated with the Gravity Forms team in any way - I'm just a satisfied customer!

I went with the Gravity forms. Found a coupon online and saved a few bucks. It works well. Thanks guys – Tom Dec 14 '10 at 4:47

If you're interested in free, there's also TDO Mini Forms (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tdo-mini-forms/) and cformsII (http://www.deliciousdays.com/cforms-plugin/)
