1. add the block to where you want.

<block type="catalog/product_list" name="sortby" template="catalog/product/list/sortby.phtml">
<block type="catalog/product_list_toolbar" name="product_list_toolbar_sortby" template="catalog/product/list/toolbar_sortby.phtml">
<block type="page/html_pager" name="product_list_toolbar_pager"/>
<action method="setToolbarBlockName"><name>product_list_toolbar_sortby</name></action>

2. app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/list/sortby.phtml


<?php if($_productCollection->count()): ?>

<?php echo $this->getToolbarBlock()->setTemplate('catalog/product/list/toolbar_sortby.phtml')->toHtml(); ?>

<?php endif; ?>

3. app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/list/toolbar_sortby.phtml

you can customize from toolbar.phtml
