To display featured products on the front page you have to add this code to the home xml:

<block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.catalog.product.new" alias="product_homepage" template="catalog/product/new.phtml" />

This block will show only products that are set as new, so after that you will need to go to each product that you want on the front page and set it as new from the actual or past date.

Hope that helps!
