$query = "SELECT * FROM mytable LIMIT $i, 20";
Where 20 is the number of rows to retrieve and $i is the starting row.
By incrementing $i + 20 you can do next, prev buttons, or parse the total
number of rows into page links (prev - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.. 10.. 20 - next).
Search www.mysql.com for more information about using LIMIT in your queries.
