There are a couple of good Wikipedia articles.  This search will help you get started understanding the topic.

The most important issued will not be the technical ones - it will be the terms of use.  Most publishers pay a lot of money to create the content of their sites and feeds.  You will need to be careful to avoid copyright violations.

Best of luck with it, ~Ray

I think I need more details for everyone, as I was re-reading my question I don't think I asked it right.  The website I am working on has a page called industry news.  On the industry news page I want to display (rss) feeds from: Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and a few more.  I want them to update on their own.  IS this going to require programming =(???

If you're putting a link to the RSS feed, the answer is "No Programming Required" - it's just a regular link to the XML file that contains the RSS.  If you're trying to capture and reformat the information from those RSS feeds, the answer is "Programming is Required" as well as permission to republish the information.

Have a look at this page where we do our podcasting.  Find the "Sermons and Homilies" link.

OK, please explain a little more about what you mean by "capture" --  You can easily have a link to the RSS feed in your site, you just put the explicit, fully qualified URI into your HTML.
