Copy index buffer from ID3DXMesh to seperate index buffer

Basically I am trying to load a .X file into a ID3DXMesh, then copy all the information into seperate buffers, i.e. verticies into vertex buffer, tex coords into vertex buffer and indicies into an index buffer. I am fairly certain I am copying the verticies and texture coordinates correctly, I am just not sure how to do the indicies. This is how I am copying the indicies now (which is obviously not the right way to do it):
typedef struct {
		short IBNumber[3];
} IndexBufferStruct;

char *AnimatedMesh1IBPtr, AnimatedMesh1TempIBPtr;

AnimatedMesh1->LockIndexBuffer(D3DLOCK_READONLY, (void**)&AnimatedMesh1IBPtr);
ModelIB->Lock(0 ,0, (void**)&AnimatedMesh1TempIBPtr, 0);

for(DWORD i=0; i < NumberOfTriangles; i++)
{
	IndexBufferStruct *AnimatedMesh1IBStruct = (IndexBufferStruct*)AnimatedMesh1IBPtr;
	IndexBufferStruct *AnimatedMesh1TempIBStruct = (IndexBufferStruct*)AnimatedMesh1TempIBPtr;

	AnimatedMesh1TempIBStruct->IBNumber[0] = AnimatedMesh1IBStruct->IBNumber[0];
	AnimatedMesh1TempIBStruct->IBNumber[1] = AnimatedMesh1IBStruct->IBNumber[1];
	AnimatedMesh1TempIBStruct->IBNumber[2] = AnimatedMesh1IBStruct->IBNumber[2];

	AnimatedMesh1IBPtr += sizeof(IndexBufferStruct);
	AnimatedMesh1TempIBPtr += sizeof(IndexBufferStruct);
}

AnimatedMesh1->UnlockIndexBuffer();
ModelIB->Unlock();

Thanks, -Chris

typedef struct {
WORD IBNumber[3];
} IndexBufferStruct;

IndexBufferStruct *IBto, *IBfrom;

AnimatedMesh1->LockIndexBuffer(D3DLOCK_READONLY, (void**)&IBfrom);
ModelIB->Lock(0 ,0, (void**)&IBto, 0);

for(DWORD i=0; i < NumberOfTriangles; i++)
{
IBto = IBfrom;
}

AnimatedMesh1->UnlockIndexBuffer();
ModelIB->Unlock();

Of course, this assumes your mesh is using 16 bit indices.
