Auto generated views for existing model

I have a customer table that has quite a few fields. Most consist
of billing and shipping address fields. I’d like to scaffold or
generate the views for this table, but the only way I know how would
be to create the model using the scaffold command (rails 2.0) and
specifying each field. There are at least 30 fields so my command line
is going to fill up fast. Ideally I’d like to create the table in the
db without rails, it would use the rails name conventions and all that
good stuff. Then I’d create the model to link to the table. Lastly I’d
like to generate the view for the customer that would magically put
all the fields in a form for me. Does anyone know if this is possible?
