I have XWin and am running on Windows2000
professional, starting it like this:

   XWin -multiplemonitors -clipboard -rootless -screen ...

And, I am runing fvwm2 as the window manager, and a couple
of xterms in it.

So, I left mouse click to highlight some text, and
hit CNTL-C to copy it and move to another window
and hit CNTL-V to paste it. 

Nothing happens. I also tried pasting into the native
windows application "Notepad" and still nothing.

I looked into the xclipboard man page, but there was
nothing there. I checked the web. Someone suggested I
should use -emulate3buttons.

I would like to be able to copy from one xterm to another.

Every window has the reverse video highlight capability.
However, I can't get beyond that.

Please help.
