Use one of the packages mentioned, or a document class (like memoir)
that supports it.  This used to be quite frequently asked, so searching
"google groups" will give answers too.

Good way.

There was some confusion about how to use \thispagestyle for
this purpose.  Here's how; it is ad-hoc and meant for final 
fix-ups before you submit.  Don't worry about the appearance
while you are writing.

Where you declare the float (or in the text just before where the 
float eventually gets placed) declare

\thispagestyle{plain}%  or "headings"... your regular page style

Then in the text on the page after the float placement, declare
