Like the others, I also would say fancyhdr.sty (it is in both 
distributions, gwTeX and TeXLive-2007).

I find it useful in course handouts, exams, etc., and have been using it 
for quite long time. Here are the relevant lines of my typical preamble:


\addtolength{\headheight}{14pt} % space for the rule

\lhead{Updated: \today \hfill  Set 4}%{\small 1st version: 2005}
\title{Some Generative Grammars: Set 4}

\thispagestyle{fancy}  %% to have the rule ad the header on the title page
