Yep, you need to add the fields to the products table. Then log into the 
admin interface as a superuser and edit the metadata for the products table 
(you click on the Item editor link next to the little ducky icon to do 
this). Here you can add the new fields to whatever tab(s) you deem most 
appropriate. Finally, you can set the widget options for each new field by 
using the metadata icon that appears immediately to the right of the field 
in tab view.
