    Milkshape 3D is always a good start, seems to be the most supported low-cost program in terms of exporters etc. Use it for modelling, skinning and animation.
    Blender is open-source and therefore completely free, but well done to you if you can figure out the user interface, I certainly can't! ;) As far as I know it does everything - modelling, skinning and animation.
    Ultimate Unwrap3D is purely for unwrapping your models so you can skin them correctly.
    CharacterFX is purely for skeletal animation.

    These are the main low-cost/free download programs I have come across in my time. If you have a higher budget then you can move on to things like the Caligari products (trueSpace and gameSpace), Maya, or the mighty 3D Studio MAX. But if I were you I'd stick with the ones mentioned first, approximately 200x cheaper :D
