The obvious question is "Why do that?"  If there is a certain criteria you 
want to meet, it's generally better to  do that in your select statement.

Having got that out of the way,

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM a_table");
$num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);

returns the number of rows you have fetched, then use mysql_data_seekI() to 
position the result pointer ...
mysql_data_seek( $result, 3 )
will put you on the 4th row.

It's all at,
but I'll repeat, as a rule of thumb, do your work in the select statement, 
if possible.
