You should also see "New". Click it. Then give name to your template edit it 
(draw a black square or something to the page) and click close. Now you can 
apply your just created "master page" to any of your document's pages by 
opening the page palette and dragging your template to the pages where you 
want to apply it.
"Append" will append "master pages" from another document. So it won't do 
anything if you don't have any master pages created in the doc from where 
you're appending.
