Wichert included a bunch of autocommands (that won't work in vim 6) in
/etc/vimrc with the 5.x packages.

Press 'v' to enter "VISUAL" mode.  Then move the cursor to select the
text area you want.  'y' will "yank" (copy) the text to the
cut-buffer.  'p' will "paste" that text "after" the cursor location,
'P' will "paste" before the cursor location.  Or just use the mouse
