Can I have 2 widget zones

I want to put advertising on my BE site and I trying to work out the layout so that I can put advertising at the top of the page in the side column but I also want the page list and month list close to the top while putting other elements under more advertising.

My first thought on how to do this was to simply have 2 widget zones and then select the elements that would display in each one. This doesn't work or at least it's not as straight forward as that. Is there a way to do this.

I know I have seen themes that have a three column layout and the widget elements were broken over two columns.

Yes, you can have multiple widget zones.  The trick is to give each widget zone its own unique ZoneName.  See here for more details.

Thanks for the help on that. I figured it had to do with naming issues but I just didn't know enough about the structure of BE to go tinkering around with too much stuff.
