import one project into another

there must be an easy way for this one that I'm just not thinking of ..

I have two projects, and want to add the first project into my second.. but I don't want to render the first project and import an AVI, I want the results of the EDL of my first project added into my second project so that I have all of the clips pointing to the original files, with the markers intact, etc.

tried to copy the first timeline, open the second project and then paste (simple approach I know) but vegas forgets the copy buffer when I open my second project so there's nothing to paste.

I see how I can save my first project as a text file which is the EDL, and I can open that file in a new project which then gives me what I want, all of the clips, markers, etc. but I can't figure out how to open that EDL into my second project when my second project is open already .. know what I mean?

this is in vegas 8 (I do have v10, but am working in 8 b/c I have to scrub some mpegs and v10 can't do it well but v8 still can).

THANKS ...!

it's called 'nesting'.

as for copy/paste, you need to have 2 instances of vegas open already...

To expand just a bit on what Leslie said;
To nest the projects open one in Vegas then use project media icon to bring the 2nd project into the project media bin.

To Cut and Paste open 2 instances of Vegas open first project in one instance, 2nd project in the other instance of Vegas. Copy and Paste from one to the other. Done.

guys - thanks - sometimes it's the simple stuff that's not obvious and that's when it's time to ask someone and take a break .. didn't think to open 2 instances at once .. I did also nest the two but the simple cut & paste is really what I was after, so thanks, greatly appreciated... back to work for me ..
