I display form errors within the form itself (with a non-radical message 
saying they screwed up) and system errors in a nice red box: most system 
errors require them to take specific action (eg, harass me) whereas 
validation errors are something they need to deal with. That said, I've 
also handled the same situation by forwarding to a separate page with 
system error info (not on the form at all).
