Copy/pasting multiple entries in XP?

As far as i can figure out XPs clipboard only holds one entry at a time. I want to be able to copy different entries at the same time preferably with keyboard shortcuts. Is this possible in XP or would i have to install something? If so what (freeware) should i choose?

Yep, Windows can hold only one item in its clipboard at any one time.

If you use Microsoft Office products, there is a separate Office Clipboard than can hold up to 24 items, but only within Office apps.

I use Ditto.

Lifehacker has mentioned several utilities like this in the past. I skim past them, becaue I'm a linux guy, but a search through their archives should turn up several.

There are any number of free clipboard programs available. You can also search for them at www.download.com. I use clipomatic.

I used to use Clipboard Recorder, but it was too buggy.

I use CLCL. It's not the easiest to use app, but it works for me.

Seconding Ditto. I've been using it for the last few weeks and it does the trick.
