How do i make model parts move along together?

A Forum Thread for Portal

I want to replace GLaDOS head as a cube

I want to replace GLaDOS head as a cube, but i either get the body part of GLaDOS to move instead of the head, or other times i get the head to move but then the body doesn't move along with it. I used blender in order to do something like this, i don't know how to get bones or model to stick together or move with together, i'm kinda new to blender so i'm not really good using it. But i want to replace her head as a cube, just for fun. So if anyone has any answers and solutions, Please post your thoughts here, Thanks.

    First i get the models i want out of the pak dir thing with GCFScape, then when i've done that, i decompile them with a software called Crowbar and i wait for it do to it. After that's done, i installed a source plugin for Blender so i can import the smd into Blender. I get the model to appear and i do the things i want to do with it, i get rid of the GLaDOS head (Which for me takes forever) and i get the cube smd and drag it down to where the GLaDOS head was. I then join the two together (The body of GLaDOS and the cube with ctrl+j) and it joins together (i think it does?) then want to join the bones with the head and body, Difficult part coming in. I always try to find a way on the internet, they helped, but not fully. One of them was ctrl+p which i have done and i thought it did the trick, but of course it didn't. Rigging though,  As i said in the forum i'm a total newbie at Blender and hardly know where the controls are and what they do.

    Hey there :3
