AFAIK, it *should* work while in CentOS. I mean, when both the select and 
paste operations are inside CentOS.

Selecting in Windows and pasting in CentOS (and vice versa) has to be done in 
the Windows-style. I am yet to see a Windows machine configured to have the 
"select" and "copy" operations merged into one, let alone "paste"-ing with the 
middle mouse button... ;-)

Maybe take a look at gpm?

man gpm
yum info gpm

HTH, :-)
