For future reference, this question might be better asked in the Directx forum.

Are you using Directx8 or 9?

If 8, this tutorial on skinned meshes is helpful:

If 9, your best bet is to study the SDK skinned mesh sample, as well as looking at the documentation for ID3DXAnimationSet, ID3DXAnimationController, and ID3DXAllocateHierarchy interfaces. I do not personally have any experience with either DirectX8 or the Milkshape format.

Additionally, the Summer Update samples include a multi-animation sample; I'm not sure if Milkshape supports this, but the sample shows how to blend animations.

edit: spelling
edit: summer update info
