Hello
See file attached, you'll need multicols package
I got some trouble with this before
I always put the \begin {multicols}{2} on an empty standart line wich 
is at the same level as the enumerate which is to be in multicols. 
(clear no ;))
Hope that helps

Use multicol package at the beginning of the first nested item, then
the end of the last nested item.

1. A line of text.
  (a) ERT\begin{multicols}{2}endERTFirst item
