You'd better set the \secnumdepth and \tocdepth counters:

\setcounter{\secnumdepth}{-2} % no numbers at all, see the familiar 
documentation for details
\setcounter{\tocdepth}{1}   % parts,chapters & sections are included in 
the toc (book and report) or parts and sections.

Look into the Memoir class to easily format chapter headings (you don't 
want to mess with just sections). If you suppress the numbers, I 
believe the "chapter" is killed as well.
