[texhax] change margins for some pages in a doc

The package "geometry" solves your problem.
In the preamble:
\usepackage[left=3cm,right=3cm,a4paper]{geometry} (change the values to the
correct margins, see the documentation for more options).

In the document, you can use \newgeometry{left=1cm,right=1cm,top=1cm} to
change the left,right and top margins to one cm.
Simply use the command \restoregeometry when you want to go back to the
orginal margins.
