Try turning on auto-fill-mode (M-x auto-fill-mode), if it's not
already on. If it doesn't automagically wrap your lines where you'd
like them wrapped, hit C-u (column number you'd like 'em wrapped
at) C-x f, which will set the fill-column to the desired number. If
you customize the variable fill-column, I think it will set it for
all buffers you can open now and in the future.

If the above is the desired behavior, try adding this to your
.emacs file:

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'turn-on-auto-fill)

and then evaluate it by placing the cursor at the end of the line
and hitting C-e to load it for this session (I'm sorry if you
already know this, but I figure it's better to be thorough the
first time around just in case). Next time you start emacs, it'll
be automatically evaluated; its effect is to turn on auto-fill-mode
whenever you enter text mode.

I hope that's helpful!

Amy
