Windows 7: Word 2010:make simple header each page, "Blah blah page [x] of [y]" ?

Word 2010:make simple header each page, "Blah blah page [x] of [y]" ?

I am trying to do something which I found very simple in Word 2003 and 2007, but which is stumping me in Word 2010 even after half an hour.

I have a four page document, nothing fancy in it, just text, a few bullet points etc. I now want to add the following to each page:

-- in the upper right hand corner, in 9 point Calibri font, underlined, this header: "John Smith Bio, page [x] of [y]" where x is the current page number and y is in this case always 4.

(If making it automatically know there are 4 pages is a stretch, I can live for now, as I'm in a hurry, with "John Smith Bio page [x] of 4")

It would take quite a while to describe everything that I've tried. All the templates, wizards etc seem to let me do everything except what I want. What look like they are blue fields in Design mode don't seem to let me type anything in them.

Could someone please take pity and just tell me, step by step, what to do? I'd be very grateful. This is rather time-sensitive.
