Default NURBS to Polygon Problem! help!

Hi Everyone

Still nubin' around with maya, and trying out all the free tutorials and getting better and better.. I guess...

I'm doing the Cartoon Dog by Kurt Boulitier and I'm at the stage where every piece is converted into polygons etc, you know the drill.

I running maya 2008, which ofc isn't the version Kurt is using in that tutorial, so I'm having a hard time finding the various tools etc. When the dogs head and neck is to be merged Kurt uses the Boolean operation which I found in -> Polygons -> Mesh -> Boolean (think it's right?)

but...

When I use the Union tool both the head and the neck disappears. Pretty stuck at this point! Help me pls a high five to the one who can enlighten me

Haha… you have to tinker around with the settings to get it right, and at a point where it doesn't screw up your geo. Check out the help files (F1).
