Try using the geometry.sty package. It gives you a lot of control on  
the geometry of the page. what you want could be achieved by the lines

\geometry{paperheight=11in, paperwidth=8.5in, top=0.5in,  
bottom=0.5in, left=0.5in, right=0.5in}

There is some fine print regarding headers and footers, so be sure to  
read the documentation...
