For starters
Check catalog.cfg for this:
OptionsEnable option_type

Check your products database for the field option_type

Each item should have Simple, or Matrix or Null in this field to enable the 
code in flypage.html etc...

The ITL should already be in the default catalog.
Start with  flypage.html for .....
then your shopping cart, and checkout pages, email receipts...
It really depends on how your code displays the items on the web site, it 
could be completely custom, but not too difficult to add.

The code in the standard catalog has not changed much, it should give the 
necessary clues on how to render the information.
