There are a number of ways. Here's using the enumerate package:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumerate}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumerate
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}[I]
  \item One
  \item Two
  \item Three
\end{enumerate}

\begin{enumerate}[i]
  \item One
  \item Two
  \item Three
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

Here's another method via the enumitem package. It yields the same output as above:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumitem
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}[label=\Roman*]
  \item One
  \item Two
  \item Three
\end{enumerate}

\begin{enumerate}[label=\roman*]
  \item One
  \item Two
  \item Three
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

And then, without any packages:

\documentclass{article}
\renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\theenumi}
\begin{document}
\renewcommand{\theenumi}{\Roman{enumi}}%
\begin{enumerate}
  \item One
  \item Two
  \item Three
\end{enumerate}

\renewcommand{\theenumi}{\roman{enumi}}%
\begin{enumerate}
  \item One
  \item Two
  \item Three
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

There's also the paralist package, that works just like enumerate in this case. –  Christian May 2 '12 at 6:06

Unfortunately, with paralist the 8th item is misaligned (with enumerate it's correct). –  Javier Bezos May 2 '12 at 7:04

If you want to type:

I.

II.

III.

Use:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\usepackage{enumurate}
\begin{enumerate}[I.]
  \item text
  \item text
  \item text
\end{enumerate}

Another possibility for [I.] is [(I)] which gives

(I)

(II)

(III)

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). –  Peter Jansson Apr 2 '13 at 10:27

The question is how to have lowercase roman numeral, not to add a period/dot after the Roman numeral. –  Guido Apr 2 '13 at 11:29
