XSL-FO 1.0 only supports a single flow.

Because it is not valid for XSL-FO 1.0.

As I mentioned in my last note, you will have to measure out the amount 
that you think will fit on the first page, and then measure out the 
remainder onto a separate page, each going in turn into the one flow for 
the page sequence.

You can use break-before= or you can use a new page sequence

I hope this helps.
