Display Title Field when uploading a document

I got following question yesterday,

In my sharepoint sites there is a default title field that is created whenever you create a document Library. There are two issues with this field that I am trying to work out.
  1. Whenever you upload a document, the title field is not available to put information into.
  2. There is no way to make this title field a required field.

To fix above problem

The title field is defined in the SCHEMA.xml file for the document library type.
