If you ever wanted to copy multiple items to your clipboard, you can use a small (650 kb) utility called Glipper. Once installed, you can add it as an applet in any of your panels (named as Clipboard Manager), and now whenevr you copy anything, your previous copied item is stored in a stack. You can select it by clicking the applet icon, and paste it in the regular way.
