Try Ctrl-A | (i.e. the pipe symbol). Should do it with more recent
versions of screen.

I don't think that's what the OP meant. He's looking for a single window with 2 columns. Not 2 windows with 1 column each. The left column would have lines 1 to N/2 and the right column would have lines N/2+1 to N. I suppose the cursor would be located in the right column and as the window buffer filled, the left column would scroll the top portion of the buffer.

I'm not sure this is possible, but it would be useful.
