Here are two previous threads on installing cranks:
Cranks (yet more)
crank falls off

And one thread on what I think causes the cranks to get loose:
need some new cranks

The three things that make sure your cranks get on tight and stay tight
A little bit of grease on the tapers
Loctite on the threads
A torque wrench to tighten it all up

That's the trick. No more loose cranks.
If your cranks get loose after doing all that then you've got either a damaged crank or a damaged hub.

I should link to one of those threads in my bookmark list.
