How do I make a title page for my document?

You need to specify the title and author of the document between the \documentclass and \begin{document} commands of your paper. Then, after the \begin{document} command, you should include the \maketitle command.

For example:

	\title{This is the Title}
	\author{This is your name}
	(the text of your paper)

By default, the titlepage will include the date on which you latex'd the paper. If you want to override that with a date of your own, put the line

	\date{Your Date Here}

along with the \title and \author lines.

If you're using the report documentclass, the title page will be printed as a separate page; if you're using the article documentclass, the title will be printed at the top of the first page of text.
