First of all, remember that columns is a function of a text frame, so 
you must have a text frame to have columns.
Select the frame, then go to the Shape tab of Properties, where you see 
a section Distance of Text, and inside you can choose number of columns, 
gap in between, and also spaces around the outside of the text, between 
it and the borders of the frame.

Also note that this is not inherited by a linked frame -- only the frame 
for which you manually change number of columns is affected.

Finally, in 1.3.5svn the columns settings have moved to a sub-tab of the 
Text tab.
