you've already asked this question: superuser.com/questions/81280/… ... looks like you have two accounts ( superuser.com/users/20976/linuxnewbie and superuser.com/users/20839/linuxnewbie ); you should email team@superuser and request they merge the old account so you can update and your original question. –  quack quixote Dec 24 '09 at 20:14
    
And a third: superuser.com/users/21334/linuxnewbie Also PLEASE read the FAQ (given your "answer" which should have been a comment at the earlier question). Thanks & success. –  Arjan Dec 24 '09 at 20:30

On Linux you can use tee from the command line to copy to multiple destinations.

cat file | tee outfile1 outfile2

You can use cp along with xargs to copy entire folders to multiple destinations:

echo somedir somedir2 | xargs -n 1 cp -a folder/

On Windows, there is n2ncopy:
