Formatting page numbers

So I am finally starting my first novel ever, going to publish it to Lulu, yay!!! I am so excited to be able to use my creative freedom and talents to make a good starting book that will help evolve my writing!


I got started with it last night and I came across a slight problem that I should address - formatting the page numbers. Every book usually starts with the title, a few blank pages, the copyright page, and a dedication/acknowledgements page if you want. But I want to know is how exactly do you insert "Page 1" on Page 6 in Microsoft Word? I've been messing around and I can't seem to format it properly. Furthermore, how exactly do you omit the page number and header from the first few pages? Can someone show me how to do that so it looks like a professional book header?
