Try the enumitem packet. Read its pdf-manual.

Dear Fellows: I am in need to modifiying the behaviour of the enumerate environment so that whenever I insert a list, the vertical space between the start of the list and its end have the same length as the rest of the text. So far, I tried a dirty and horrible tweak:

\vspace{\msep}
\begin{enumerate}
\setlength{\itemsep}{0cm}%
\setlength{\parskip}{0cm}%
\item ... ... ....
...
\end{enumerate}\vspace{\msep}

In this case \msep is just an arbitrary distance that tries set by me to match the default interline spaces for the main text, however the trick doesnt help. Please let me know your opinion.
