Default How to extract (separate) a piece of polygon geometry

Hi,

probably a simple question here but,

how can I extract (detach) a piece of polygon geometry?
EG. remove the arm off a character (without deleting the rest of the geometry)? I want the arm to come off as a big chunk not in individual polys. I'm using Maya 7.01 PLE

Thanks in advance

Regards

Jim
