Lupine from seed

I have some lupine seeds, and I'm reading that there are some steps before planting.

* Fridge for 48 hours

* Nick the shell

* Put the seeds in a moist paper towel, roll it up, and put it in a Ziploc for 24 hours at room temp

The confusion I have is that the seed packet doesn't say any of that! It just says to soak them in water overnight :-O That's a pretty big difference.

What do you recommend?

Also, does "nick" mean "cut off a corner of the shell"? These seeds are pretty small, I'm not sure how to hold on to it while cutting off a corner. Tweezers, maybe?
