Modifying the 2columns-right.phtml layout content.

I modified 2columns-right.phtml, and then in the admin I created a new product category, setting it to use 2columns-right.phtml. However, I cannot figure out which XML layout I need to change in order to modify the content that appears in the right column. In page.xml, there is a block as “right”, and if I delete that block then the right content disappears.

<block type="core/text_list" name="right" as="right"/>

However, I find it odd that even works since this block is within another block that has template="page/3columns.phtml". I need to find out where this right content is referenced. I think it should be in catalog.xml, but no matter what reference to “right” I delete or modify it does not change the 2 column layout right side at all.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
