    If you fire up SharePoint Designer you should see that there are new and edit forms and you may be able to customize the form that way

    I've used this: SPViewPermissionSetting (Powered by Laurent Cotton Aka Suchii - Bewise) It was fine on 2007, but requires a few tweaks to the SharePoint template files to make work on 2010.

    If you're using infopath forms then the same form is used for both.

    But there is a bit of a kludge you can use to change this (very kludgey, but it works). Create a couple of new content types in the list (New Item, and Old Item for example). Add a workflow that, when a new item is added (the default type) changes the content type to Old Item. Then you can create completely different forms for each - you can even have the new item form allow individual submissions, while the edit item form allows multiple item edits.
