[texhax] two minipages side-by-side in beamer

I am using beamer on Win98 with MikTex.  I want to make two itemized 
lists, side-by-side, on a single slide.

Here is my preamble:



I tried using \begin{minipage} like this:


	\item current symptoms
	\item past medical history
	\item family history
	\item social history
	\item review of systems

	\item detect hypertension
	\item recognize emergency
	\item recognize reversible causes
	\item find chronic target organ damage
	\item discover co-morbid conditions
	\item plan therapy

But I just got one 11-item bulleted list.

So I put in \twocolumn just below \frametitle{...}, but that didn't make 
any difference.

Anyone know how to do this?  Should I \usepackage{multicols} (I think 
there is something like that)?
