You can also look at the .log file and check that TeX isn't missing a
chance to hyphenate. Look at the last word of the overfull line in the
log and TeX will show you where it could be hyphenated and if there
aren't any, look in a good dictionary to see how the word can be
hyphenated and add a \hyphenation command in your preamble to tell TeX
how to hyphenate the word. For example, here's what I have in a book
I'm working on:

\hyphenation{Net-scape Java-Script Quick-Check flow-charts Small-talk
man-u-script man-u-scripts da-ta-base da-ta-bases}
