I think I answered my own question.  Or at least I did something that
produced what I was looking for:

\documentclass{amsart}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{lastpage}
\begin{document}

\thispagestyle{empty}
\cfoot{Page \thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}
\pagestyle{fancy}

\begin{center}
\textsc{CPTR 331 --- Networking --- Fall 2009 Syllabus}
\end{center}
