copying lines from one file to another using vi



Redhat wizards,
 
I am doing good with auditing but want to copy key lines from example files into /etc/audit/audit.rules
 
What is the vi/vim syntax to copy lines from one file and post them into another file - i.e. my audit.rules file?
 
5yy appears to yank the current line and 4 more and one can paste the buffered lines into the same file but I want to pass the lines to a different file.
 
:h file_name     I recall from along ago but that is for an entire file - I think:
 
Please help me to copy files from sample auditing files into my real "audit.rules".
 
 
Thanks,
 
John
