To achieve your requirement what i can suggest you is ... explore the theme / template you using.. in that .. list_template.php contains the pagination
i have not explored other themes much but i use flexigrid and there the code for pagination begins with
but the whole of the code is merely connected with the form so you can copy the pdiv completely from bottom to top also ... .. else you can copy everything along with the form .. just changing the ids
eitherway round.. ultimately the goal is to control it...
This should surely help you on the same.
