Audiotuts has a short little article on mastering.
The basic gist is to apply compression, EQ and limiting.
The tutorial takes place in Logic and so is a reasonable advert for the plugins that come packaged with Logic and shows that its possibel to get good results yourself.
Its worth bearing in mind that there are reasons why mastering engineers spend a long time perfecting their art! If you really want your track to sound good its worth getting a professional to do your mastering...
A good book on mastering is Mastering Audio by Bob Katz
