Thought you deserved a reply.
Theres Bugger All good info out there on Skinned Meshes, and even less on animating them, the nuts and bolts of matrix hierarchies etc.
I'm with you bro !! I feel your pain !!
All I can suggest is the example from the dx8 sdk, which is in C, you'll need to translate it etc. Maybe when I finish the Donuts3D example I'll turn my attention to animated skinned mesh models.
