    try and work with a tool such as Firebug to identify which styles you need to edit to stretch the content over the available space;

    there is no general solution, as this depends on the html/css structure of the used theme.

    Without seeing you theme in action, I suggest this:

    - make sure you have a copy of this theme's style.css so that if adjustments do not go well, you can just replace the modified one with the original

    In your theme's style.css in your editor:

    - scroll to "#column-right" and add "display:none;" directly behind the "#column-right {" - this should eliminate the right column, allowing you to widen the main content (#column-primary)

    - scroll to "#column-primary" and change "width: 620px;" to "width: 908px;" - this allows the main content to be 908 pixels in width while preserving a 30 pixel margin on both sides, thus centering the main column

    #column-right { display:none;
    float: right;
    margin-top: 0;
    padding-top: 0;
    margin-right: 24px;
    width: 25px;
    }

    #column-primary {
    float: left;
    width: 908px;
    margin-left: 30px;
    }
