[development] Creating separate registration forms for each role

I tried the content_profile method suggested by Ken Winters, for 
creating a separate registration form with extra custom fields. I was 
able to add fields to the registration form. But now I am faced with 
another problem - even the default registration form shows the fields 
that I have added for the suppliers' form. Is there anyway some of these 
field can be restricted to the reg form for only certain roles? I am 
using this in conjunction with the autoassignrole module.

Thanks in advance.
