Default How to link text boxes on master pages in ID??

I'm trying to create my very first ID document from scratch. I'm using ID CS2 on PC.

How the heck do you link text boxes on master pages??? I've read the help files and my "Moving to InDesign" book, and I can't get it to work.

I have one set of facing master pages, one text box (2-column) on each page, it should be easy, no?

When I try to link them, sometimes it actually creates a new text box on top of the original one.

And no matter what I try, when I actually pour text into the first page of my document, it will not flow to the next page. It stops dead with a red plus sign in the "out port" of the text box.

What's the secret? I am WAY behind on this project because I have spent several hours trying to set up the dadgummed master pages.
