They don't come up on the iPod, or in iTunes. I thought everything I needed was in the RSS file. I didn't realize I had to put it in the id3tags, but kinda makes sense. I tend to run a lean system with only the packages I really need. But I can't seem to figure out which package as that command, so what is it?

I'm a system engineer, I do a fair amount of shell scripting and perl programming, but I have no desire to learn anymore xml than I have too.
