rigging for high poly?... I wonder may CS is slow for that, I recommend bones+skin (instead of biped+physique)

Of maybe biped + skin instead. It works very well.
I tried to setup Ik Joe rig and found that this is much slower than biped.
But for hipoly I'd recommend biped + physique.

I think CS and skin modifier works pretty well. The character I've been working on today is fairly high poly, but not as much as yours. If you're wanting to get realisitc movement to match the model, you'll probably be adding a few bones anyway. Then again, you can add extra bones in CS4, no problem. Sorry, not much help.

Awsome model, by the way.
EDIT: I just saw you said you were rigging him for test before skinning. I'd proabably just go with CS if it's preliminary tests, since you already know it.
