As far as I know, you can't do that from the RowFilter.  One way you could do it would be to add a new column to the original DataTable, setting it as an AutoIncrement column.  Then once you create your dataview you could use this new column to filter out specific ranges of rows.

Personally, I have always found the following fast enough for my uses:

DataTable filteredDataTable = myDataSet.Tables["sometable"].Clone();
int numberOfRows=myDataSet.Tables["sometable"].Rows.Count;
for (int counter=Math.Max(numberOfRows-5,0); counter<numberOfRows; counter++)
{
    filteredDataTable.ImportRow(myDataSet.Tables["sometable"].Rows[counter]);
}

Now filteredDataTable has the last 5 (or less, if there are less than five rows in the original table) rows of the original DataTable.

Hope this helps.
