If you have primary key in your table, then have a look at the following script

SELECT        (SELECT COUNT(i.au_id) 
               FROM pubs..authors i 
               WHERE i.au_id >= o.au_id ) AS RowID, 
              au_fname + ' ' + au_lname AS 'Author name'
FROM          pubs..authors o

This will generate the RowId and then accordingly you can select the rows which you want sepcifying the range in the where clause.

if you are using SQL Server 2005 then have a look at following link.

The physical order of data in a database has no meaning

What purpose does it serve you to say you want rows 2 thru 5?

Tell us what value rows 2 thru 5 have, then we can help
