I would like to structure my document with two columns in the middle of the page, and one column in the top and in the bottom. Like my example below. How can I do two columns like this in OpenOffice.org Writer?

Type the first bit of text normally. Then, go to the Insert menu, choose Section, click on the Columns tab, and then choose two columns.

That will give you two columns just for that section, rather than for the entire page.
