you have to add LIMIT function to your mysql queries.

there is another question on this forum recently that asked to do something similar.

$query = "select * from mytable LIMIT 0,10";

that would select first 10 records.

so if you made a variable $limit and a constant $resultsperpage = 10;

you could do this

$query = "select * from mytable LIMIT $limit,$resultsperpage";

to make next and previous work you will need to pass parameters to the page, for this example you would just pass the page number.

so on the first page your next link would be like this :
<a href="results.php?page=2">Next</a>

you can then work out the limt from the page number :
$page = $_GET["page"];
$limit = ($page - 1) * $resultsperpage;

hope that gives you an understanding
