I suppose the first way is at the \documentclass level. Of course, that 
sets it globally. What Peter D referred to is also an option, i.e.,


where the first argument is the point size of the font and the second 
argument is the baseline skip.

I use the memoir class, where section heads can be formatted to suit 
your needs via something like:


This example is from memman.pdf page 235. I'm sure that, just as the 
physician once told me: "there are at least 6 ways to take out a gall 
bladder," there are at least as many ways to modify section headings. (I 
can't seem to find the secsty on TL2008 ... maybe it's old?)

Hope that helps.
