I get a bank page after the content page. The content page is numbered in roman numerals. The chapters have Arabic page numbers. The blank page that I get after the content page has Arabic number 1. I want to avoid that blank page, so that, the Chapter 1 page will have number 1.

It would be great if you edit your question and add a minimal example which produces that problem. Until now, we don't even now your document class. – Stefan Kottwitz Dec 22 '10 at 15:01
If you are using a book class, the empty page is a deliberate empty left page and chapters alsways start on the right. You could then pass the 'openany' option to the documentclass – Martin H Dec 22 '10 at 16:07
@Martin: still a little puzzling why the otherwise blank page is numbered "1" and not in roman numerals... – SamB Dec 26 '10 at 5:50

You could use the oneside class option for the book class, if you're using it.
