Formatting a legal document in MS Word

I'm writing a legal brief....  Lots of formatting issues, but for now, how do you  deal with page numbers?   Opening title page has no page number;  next 10-15 are Roman numerals (e.g. i, iv, etc) the Arabic.

How can my document be set up like this

Each time you change page numbering, you create a new section. Then you unlink the footer of the new section  from the previous one. Now you can insert the appropriate page numbering in footer of each section.

Section 1 - no page number inserted.

Section 2 - insert page numbering - format as Roman numerals - start nembering at i.

Section 3 - insert page numbering - set format to Arabic numbers (1) and either restart at 1 or continue numbering from the previous section.

Exactly HOW you do this depends on the version of MS Office you are using (2000 & 2003 or 2007 & 2010).

Thank you.
I have the latest MS Word.... I guess I'm not sure how to establish sections.

Page Layout tab -> Page Setup group -> Breaks -> Next Page. A pictire is worth a thousand words:Insert Section break
