How do I set a different header margin for the first page in Microsoft Word 2007?

I'm still working on dissertation formatting. I've got almost everything I need done. Except for this: I need the text of the first page of each chapter (where it says Chapter X) to be exactly one inch from the top of the page.
Why is this a problem? Well, it's because, at the same time, I need every other page to have page numbers showing at exactly 1 inch from the top of the page. I've done that, with MeFi's help. But now, I don't seem to be able to format page 1 properly, and retain header formatting for the page numbers throughout the rest of the document.
What this means is that I think I need to find a way to change the header margin on p1 without changing it for the rest of the document. I don't know how to do this.
All suggestions welcomed. Idiot-proof suggestions preferred. Thanks!
