paperclip is making me crazy

seems pretty simple, my model...

has_attached_file :pic_1, :styles => { :thumb => "120x90" },
  :url => "/:attachment/:id_:style.:extension",
  :path => ":rails_root/public/system/:attachment/:id_:style.:extension"

my view...

<% form_tag(:action => 'create', :html => { :multipart => true }) do -%>
  <label for="ad_pic_1">Image</label>
  <%= file_field 'ad', 'pic_1' %>
<%= submit_tag ' Save ', :class => 'button' %>

and I save and the development.log shows expected...
Processing Admin::AdsController#create (for 127.0.0.1 at 2010-02-13
17:49:15) [POST]
  Parameters: {"html"=>{"multipart"=>"true"}, "commit"=>" Save ",
"ad"=>{"salesprogram_id"=>"3", "pic_1"=>"DSC01760.JPG",
"active"=>"true"}, "action"=>"create", "authenticity_token"=>"-",
"controller"=>"admin/ads"}

But the SQL Insert for pic_1_file_name, pic_1_file_size,
pic_1_content_type and pic_1_updated_at are all NULL

and I've googled and flailed and googled and flailed but I cannot make
this work.

Can anyone toss me a bone here?

Parameters: {"html"=>{"multipart"=>"true"}, "commit"=>" Save ",

"ad"=>{"salesprogram_id"=>"3", "pic_1"=>"DSC01760.JPG",
"active"=>"true"}, "action"=>"create", "authenticity_token"=>"-",
"controller"=>"admin/ads"} actually is not what you want to see in the params hash; the value at "pic_1" should be a File object...

:html isn't an option form_tag understands; use use :multipart => true
for your options hash.
