Making multiple columns in map legends - ArcMap 9.3

How do I create multiple columns in a map legend in ArcMap 9.3?  I can find absolutely nothing in the ArcGIS Desktop Help about columns in legends.

I tried the Columns field in the Legend Properties dialog box.  I also tried clicking on the "Place in New Column" field for several of the legend items as well.  I've even done a combination of the two.  No matter what I do, I always get the same result.  It looks like it adds a second column but all the layers I add to it are listed horizontally, rather than vertically.  It looks something like this:

XXXX     XXXX     XXXX    XXXX
                                     XXXX
                                     XXXX
                                     XXXX

(It actually comes out with the vertically-listed column on the right and the three horizontally-spaced items on the left.)

How do I get it to make 2 (or 3) vertically-listed columns?

Thanks.

Phil
