Outlook 2010 with Word 2010. I select the Contacts to create mailing labels and get to the three steps: Setup, Data Source and Get Data. The Merge button in Step 3 is " greyed" out. Nothing I do will let the labels be displayed and printed with the correct data from the selected Contacts

Did you Setup a merge document that includes the fields you want to merge?

Did you select the Data Source?

As Ben suggests, you need to hit Setup first. When you start the merge from Outlook, the Merge button may always be disabled - you'll go into the document and add the merge fields, then finish the merge from Word. Seehttp://www.slipstick.com/tutorials/merge/merge.asp for a tutorial. It was created using an older version but its pretty much the same in Outlook 2010.
