Are you using LaTeX? If so what document class? The behavior
you want is the standard behavior of most document classes
that support chapters as a sectioning structure. Thus, one
would simply have to NOT do whatever it was you did that put
the page numbers at the top of the chapter page. Or put
\thispagestyle{plain} after each chapter heading.

If you are not using LateX, what are you doing to get the
chapter headings and page numbers?

This mailing list is not for questions about the _use_ of
TeX or LaTeX, but rather for discussion of TeX Live
development. Try the LaTeX Stack Exchange:
or the newsgroup comp.text.tex.
