Add new field in registration page magento 1.8.1

I have done this with the following steps.
Suppose if you want to add "occupation" after email 
Open template/customer/form/register.phtml and template/customer/form/edit.phtml
 <li>
        <div class="input-box">
            <label for="email_address"><?php echo $this->__('Email Address') ?> <span class="required">*</span></label><br/>
            <input type="text" name="email" id="email_address" value="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getFormData()->getEmail()) ?>" title="<?php echo $this->__('Email Address') ?>" class="validate-email required-entry input-text" />
        </div>
        <div class="input-box">
            <label for="occupation"><?php echo $this->__('Occupation/Title') ?></label><br/>
            <input type="text" name="occupation" id="occupation" value="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getFormData()->getOccupation()) ?>" title="<?php echo $this->__('Occupation') ?>" class="input-text" />
        </div>

    </li>


Now open app\code\core\Mage\Customer\etc\config.xml
and add <occupation><create>1</create><update>1</update></occupation>
after <fieldsets><customer_dataflow> 

Now open app\code\core\Mage\Customer\Model\Resource\Setup.php
 find $entities = array(  and add the following code 
'occupation'               => array(
                        'type'               => 'varchar',
                        'label'              => 'Fax',
                        'input'              => 'text',
                        'required'           => false,
                        'sort_order'         => 130,
                        'validate_rules'     => 'a:2:{s:15:"max_text_length";i:255;s:15:"min_text_length";i:1;}',
                        'position'           => 130,
                    ), 

 
Now i insert some value in db

INSERT INTO  `eav_attribute` (
`attribute_id` ,
`entity_type_id` ,
`attribute_code` ,
`attribute_model` ,
`backend_model` ,
`backend_type` ,
`backend_table` ,

`frontend_input` ,
`frontend_label` ,
`frontend_class` ,

`is_unique` ,
`note`
)
VALUES (

{{depend occupation}}{{var occupation}}{{/depend}}

Add this code in the “Html” textarea      
{{depend occupation}}{{var occupation}}<br />{{/depend}}
Add the below code in the “PDF” text area.

  1. Tried this, but doesn't seem to be saving the entered info.
    http://fitnessp.nextmp.net/
    I had to make a couple changes:
    -getFormData changed to getCustomer
    -htmlEscape changed to escapeHtml
    Both changes consistent with existing "email" input.

    I also wonder if the $entities array "label" should be "Occupation" not "Fax".

    I double-checked the SQL, all rows were added.
    With my changes, the field show up properly.
    I can enter info, but it does not appear later.

    Do I have to somehow run the "setup.php" file?

    p.s. yes I am a total Magento noob.
