This is probably really obvious, but I have not found an obvious answer yet:

Does anyone know how to make the product information/detail page a 1 column layout instead of its default 2?

I have asked this same question. I cant figure out how to change that pages layout either. I did it ghetto style by backing up the layout it did use and changing the template code to what I wanted. Hopefully just a temporary solution.

Check your template’s catalog.xml file. Look for this tag:  <catalog_product_view>. Below that you should find an action tag to set the template, <action method="setTemplate">. Here you can define the 1 column template. Hope that helps.
