Linux: Copy/paste in TTY

"I am looking for a way to copy and paste within a TTY. I only have a touchpad, and using it with gpm is a pain. The only possibility I can think of is to use ""screen"" but even after having remapped Ctrl-A to ""`"", it is still inconvenient and slow.
Are there any more-comfortable approaches?"

depending on what you are trying to copy and paste... bash does have a vi mode which you can edit your commands in a more like vi way than emacs(bash default) (zsh has a vim mode). putting set -o vi in ~/.bashrc enable's it.

You can connect with other computer by SSH, it's a option =).
