In Banshee, we could sort the songs by star-rating by clicking on the interface itself. This way, I could transfer my starred songs easily onto the ipod and other disks.

In RB, how do I show rating on the interface, and then sort them thus?

This answer assumes you are using Rhythmbox in either 11.10/12.04 or later.

Add the Rating to the main view

From the global menu (move you mouse to the top of the screen) - choose Edit - Preferences and tick the Rating check-box

Click the new Rating field as shown to sort either ascending or descending depending on the number of ratings you have.
