The second step isn't necessary, at least on my setup.  It's just:

To copy from rxvt to another Windows prog:
1.  Select the text with the left mouse button.  When you release the
button, it automatically gets copied to the clipboard.
2.  Go to your other Windows app and paste as you normally would.

To paste into rxvt, simply hit the middle mouse button.  If you don't have a
middle mouse button, put this in your .inputrc:

# Make the Insert key actually useful
"\e[2~": paste-from-clipboard

This makes the insert key into a paste key.
