I don't know that you can use multiple .RC files in a given project.  Maybe you can.  However, here is a method of copying the resources from one .RC file to another:

Open a fresh instance of devstudio.  Open the two .RC files in question.  Drag and drop the needed resources from the source RC to the destination RC.  Be sure to press the ctrl key while doing this to make a copy rather than a move.  Once this is done, you'll need to copy any required source files from the source project to the destination project.

I needed to do this a few years ago, and found that MS didn't support it at all.  (I had been using Borland, which was quite capable of handling mulitple RC's, as well as exporting all of a project's resources into an RC, which was nice.  But I digress.)

The solution that rayb suggests was the best that I could find at the time.
