InsertItemTemplate question

I have the following code in an ASP page.   I'm just trying to get a very basic 2 field insert done, but when the page is rendered, none of the fields in the formview even show up on the page (nor in the source code).   What am I doing wrong here?
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" 
                ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:KartrisSQLConnection %>" 

                InsertCommand="INSERT INTO [tblDCPersonTest] ([pers_firstname], [pers_middlename], [pers_lastname], [pers_ssn], [pers_dob], [pers_phonehome], [pers_phonework], [pers_personid]) VALUES (@pers_firstname, @pers_middlename, @pers_lastname, @pers_ssn, @pers_dob, @pers_phonehome, @pers_phonework, @pers_personid)" 
>

                <InsertParameters>
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_firstname" Type="String" />
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_middlename" Type="String" />
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_lastname" Type="String" />
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_ssn" Type="String" />
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_dob" Type="String" />
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_phonehome" Type="String" />
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_phonework" Type="String" />
                    <asp:Parameter Name="pers_personid" Type="Object" />
                </InsertParameters>
            </asp:SqlDataSource>

                        <asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" DataSourceId="SqlDataSource1" DataKeyNames="pers_personid">
                            <InsertItemTemplate> 
                            First Name: <asp:TextBox ID="pers_firstname" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("pers_firstname") %>'></asp:TextBox><br />
                            Last Name: <asp:TextBox ID="pers_lastname" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("pers_lastname") %>'></asp:TextBox><br />
                            <asp:Button ID="butSubmit" runat="server" CommandName="Insert" Text="Submit" />
                            </InsertItemTemplate>
                        </asp:FormView>

For an insertitemtemplate to be shown the formview has to be in insert mode by default it will show only an ItemTemplate to change this add a DefaultMode attribute to the formview tag and set to INsert :

<asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" DataSourceId="SqlDataSource1" DataKeyNames="pers_personid" DefaultMode="Insert">

Great!  Now I have a follow-up question about the InsertCommand and my primary key field.
