1. STEP 1: download the mime

    First thing is first download the MIME file.
  2. STEP 2: download the shelf files

    Hey so I am going to give you some scripts which will make rigging easier for you.
    					They were all created by Jason Scheifer, an allstar in rigging, I know it seems odd to have an allstar in rigging.
    					Download the SCRIPTS, SHELF, and ICONS.
    					You may need right click and save link as for the shelf.
  3. STEP 3: Setup Rigging Shelf

    					Go to your documents from the start menu.  
    					go to maya -> 2008.
    					in the scripts folder, dump all the scripts in the scripts.zip you downloaded
    					in the prefs -> shelves, dump all the shelf_rigging.mel 
    					in the prefs -> icons, dump all the images.
    					Restart maya to get the rigging shelf.
    					For explainations on how to use these tools check the help page.
  4. STEP 4: Download rigging controls

    					We will also need to download some rigging shapes.  We will use these for some of the anims.  Download them here.
