Can you copy the frames and paste them into a new movie clip?

Create the new mc.
Highlight the frames you want from the main timeline.
Right click over that highlighted section and select "Copy Fames".
Open the new mc.
Right click over the timeline in the new mc and select "Paste Frames"
Forgive my ignorance as I'm (perhaps obviously) new to Flash. Are you
telling me to create a new mc in a new layer that has nothing? Pressing F8
does nothing in this case. Please advise.
