You will have to edit the sites template to accomplish this. If you are not familiar with programming i would not attempt this.

Option 1 ----------------------edit your template file
First make a copy of this file--- tpl_main_page.php
Find the position on the page where you want the sideboxes to appear and insert the following code. note replace right with left to make the left boxes appear.

<div id="some name here" style="width: <?php echo  BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT; ?>"><?php require(DIR_WS_MODULES .  zen_get_module_directory('column_right.php')); ?></div>


Option 2------------------------- Download the following extension and install it----------------------

http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?main_page=product_contrib_info&products_id=79http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?main_page=product_contrib_info&products_id=79

USAGE INSTRUCTIONS:
 1. Upload this single_sidebox.php file to the same folder as your Zen Cart files.
 2. On a PHP page where you desire to show Zen Cart sidebox content, insert the following code:
   $zcSBmodule = 'name.php'; // name of sidebox or centerbox to be   displayed (see filenames in the /includes/modules/sideboxes folder) (if   not set, uses "whats_new.php")
  $zcSBlayout = 'left'; // 'left' or 'right' sidebox template style (if not specified, uses 'left')
  require ("path/to/zencart/single_sidebox.php");

Good luck
