It does show up on the new form? Are you selecting the content type when you edit the item? If you have multiple content types this could be a cause. –  spevilgenius Nov 8 '11 at 20:02

You can change ContentTypeRef to ContentType and specify fields you need to be in item's Content Type, like this:

<ContentTypes>
        <ContentType ID="0x0101">
            <Folder TargetName="Forms/Document" />
            <FieldRefs>
                <FieldRef Name="Description"/>
            </FieldRefs>
        </ContentType>
        <ContentTypeRef ID="0x0120" />
    </ContentTypes>

That should solve you issue.

Unless you specifially need the two content types, you can remove this whole section:

<ContentTypes> 
  <ContentTypeRef ID="0x0101"> 
    <Folder TargetName="Forms/Document" /> 
  </ContentTypeRef> 
  <ContentTypeRef ID="0x0120" /> 
</ContentTypes> 

Usually if you are adding custom columns you either add them to a custom content type and then reference the content type in the library schema -or- don't reference any content types and add the columns you want directly to the schema.
