Custom Sorting a Windows Forms Datagrid

I have a Windows Forms DataGrid that has a DataView as a datasource.

My problem is that I want the datagrid to exhibit some special sorting
properties when the header rows are clicked on.

From reading round the newsgroups, it seems that a custom 'IComparer' is the
answer, but I'm not quite sure how to do this. Really, how to get at the
IComparer that the DataGrid/DataView uses for sorting.

Can anyone point me towards a nice example of how to implement customised
sorting in a DataGrid.
