the geometry package for the paper size, the a0poster package for  
setting the font sizes (do not use the a0poster package as is, rip  
out the paper-size code as it is limited to dvips; geometry is much  
better. The font size commands are fine though.

geometry is installed, a0poster is available from ctan. At some point  
I'll have to dust off that poster code I have lying around and submit  
it to ctan. If you want the thoroughly undocumented sample, I think I  
can provide a package.
