No problem.

on the more recent live CDs GPM runs automatically. You select the text 
you want as usual (holding down the right mouse button or shifting and 
use the arrow keys). To paste into your other tty you normally click the 
middle button in linux (If you don't have a middle button then click 
both at once!)

If you just move the mouse about - do you have a white block cursor that 
moves around too?

When you booted into the live CD didn't it ask you for your keyboard 
layout? The newer ones do...

Are you using a UK keyboard (I guess by the time you must be in europe 
somewhere, or perhaps Australasia?)
