Does anyone have details on how to create Forms based Authentication using SharePoint 2010? I have a scenario where i want users to login and view information relating to them from a database.

This ideally would mean that that their userid would serve as an input parameter.

Any help would be appreciated.

Steve Peschka had an excellent series of articles on FBA for SharePoint 2007 but I don't think they were updated for 2010. So perhaps a better choice would be this one by Russ Maxwell, this article or this blog entry on TechNet.

Otherwise I suggest the following link ;-)
