Easiest way to do this is with VNC...
See: http://realvnc.com for the download..
There is a FREE edition to try, but that version does NOT have the feature(s) you seek.
To use both Windows and Mac, as well as use "copy/paste" across platforms, you will need to try the "Enterprise" edition.  They do, however, provide a FREE 2 week trial to see if it meets your needs prior to purchasing!
You would install the server version on the machine which will be acting as server (dialed into) and the client coftware on the other computer...  It really does not matter which way you do it, since the "copy/paste" function is bi-directional.  Client software is fully downloadable and always free... The only software that requires purchase (after the trial) is the server version.

This is for computers  in the same LAN standing next to each other.
(I think perhaps n2fc was thinking of something else)

VNC works for machines over LAN or over Internet... Either way, the clipboard is preserved for both cut/paste and file transfer...
Not sure what Olav's objection is...

It is just not so obvious how to do it - and that it is better than other software.
