There are several ways but the most trouble free is using the less command. If you are going to run a command that you know will have lots of output that won't fit on the screen run:

$ <command> | less

That pipes output to the less command which causes the commands output to be displayed one page at time. You hit the space bar to scroll down to the next page and the B key to go back a page. When you are done looking, hit the Q key to get back to the command prompt.
