according to the Codex, those functions only work on some admin pages:

Theadd_meta_box()function was introduced inVersion 2.5 
<http://codex.wordpress.org/Version_2.5>. It allows plugin developers to 
add sections to the Write Post, Write Page, and Write Link editing pages.


I want to create "movable" boxes in a new custom page generated by my 
plugin. Is there something I'm missing here?
