I would suggest you upgrade to CVS if possible, just to avoid some
issues in 1.1.6.

Anyway, just make 2 column text frames (edit number of columns is set on
the Properties palette on Shape page), then link the frames together.
Link and unlink buttons are on the toolbar.

Re templates.. no.. templates are NOT editable (YET). Another option is
to create your document with automatic text frames which are auto
created on new page created and auto linked.
