    You can export one animation with the skeleton via FBX. Each subsequent anim must be exported seperately.
    For UT3 mods things were a lot more complicated since you needed to name bones a certain way... from what I've seen many of the old rules have loosened up, which makes it a treat to do character stuff nowadays knowing how it used to be done.

    For the most part you're free to do what you want in regards to rigging. Using actor x in Maya 2011 will bake the animations into the bones when you export the animations out, so stuff like ik handles, controllers, etc. Won't interfere with the model when you export it.

    You should try searching again.
    Denny posted a long series of streaming vids on rigging.

    UDN docs somewhere have a 'standard' skeleton in FBX format you could look at as well.

    If you know how to rig in maya,it's somehow enough.
    There are also some restriction such as the number of total bones you can use and the number of bones affecting each vertex,you can find in the forum.
