An obvious work-around for the second-best solution:  Make the first 3 pages
a separate file without page numbers.  Or just write the Roman numbers 
at the
bottom of each page, using center justification. Then the remainder will 
be its
own file with page numbers starting at 1.  Now you can have most of the 
solution. Two files doesn't sound like all that big a deal.
