A geared head works best, but if a fluid head is your primary option, locking off either your pan or tilt (for straight up/down, left/right moves) can help. And the old rubber band on the end of the pan handle can too.
Also, extend your pan handle as far out as it will go can help steady things too.

Agreed with Mark, geared head is the best solution if you are not using a powered head or MOCO unit. Depending on your budget, these can be expensive rentals.
With fluid heads, adding tension will help as well as setting up with an additional pan-handle such as a TV studio build up. This will add an additional level of support.
