My cover sheet and my TOC (Table of Contents) take up the first five pages of my Word document.  I'd like to place a footer on Page six and beyond.  What's the best way to do this?  Thanks.

You need to put a section break at the end of the TOC and then add the footer to that section...  use page layout > breaks to apply the section break, probably use the next page break

also... depending on how your document is set up at the moment you can unlink the footer from the previous footer...

The option to unlink from the Previous section is on the Design ribbon when you are editing the header/footer. Its in the Navigation group.
If you want page 6 to say it is page 1 you will need to edit the numbering to start at 1 via the right click context menu. If you are happy for it to say page 6 then simply add the page number to the footer.
