I know this because I tried using the code from the DSC and altering that,
but no matter what I did, I kept running into validation issues.
The suggestion of going the FeedBurner route is THE best. However, in
order to configure an ATOM feed that can be converted to a
podcast-compatible RSS 2.0 feed, you need a blog from somewhere. This can
be either from Blogger, LiveJournal, MovableType or even Tripod. Once you
have an ATOM feed and a blog page with links to the MP3s which are your
podcast shows, you can then go to FeedBurner, get an account there, and
burn that ATOM feed into a podcast-compatible RSS 2.0 feed, which you then
advertise to the whole world. :)
But trust me though....Using someone else's feed code and altering it to
suit your needs is more problematic than it's really worth.
Just my $.02 worth based on first-hand personal experience. :)
Hope this helps :)
Cheers for now :)
