Default Page numbering

I've created a manual and want to have the page number
format to read "Page 1 of 5". I don't want the first page
(title page) to be included in the count. So basically I
want the first page to be the page after the title page
and the number of pages to exclude the title page. How do
I exclude the title page from the page count?

Default

Use a First Page Header for the first page and in the Header for the balance
of the document, use the following field construction:

Page { = { PAGE } - 1 } of { = { NUMPAGES } - 1 }

Use Ctrl + F9 for each pair of field delimiters and Alt+F9 to turn them off.
