myDataModel.paramMap['page'] = 'pageNum';
dm.baseParams = {'forumId': 4};
dm.setDefaultSort(cm, 3, 'DESC');
dm.addListener('load', sm.selectFirstRow, sm, true);

You should start by reading the docs for DataModel - these methods are all documented. You should review all the grid examples in the download as most of them contain comments in the code, which should give you further direction.

Also, these type of questions should be posted in the Help forum.
