Convert an XviD video to a standard codec?

How can I cut a video that uses an XviD codec into a few short clips, and convert them into a regular format that needs only Windows standard software to play?

I need to make a presentation in one week, in which I will be showing clips of a video that I currently have as one long XviD (.avi) movie. The computer that will run the presentation won't have any non-standard codecs on it. So, in order of priority, I need to:
1) Convert to a standard format, playable on Windows Media Player with no extra codecs installed.
2) Cut into a few short (30 seconds - 1 minute) clips.
What is the easiest way - e.g. the best free software - to do this? I don't need the software to do anything else besides 1); 2) would be a nice bonus.
