Aah! That bugs. Here's what you do in the _preamble_:

% Decrease left margin by 1/2"

%Increase text width by 1" so that the tight margin is also decreased
by 1/2"

There's a complete description of various dimensions that affect page
layout on Page 77 of _The_Not_So_Short_Introduction_to_LaTeX2e_

BTW, I'd strongly recommend this Introduction to anyone interested in
trying out LaTeX.
