Default How to install vinyl siding around chimney?

I'm about to install vinyl siding on my house and wasn't sure how to install it around my chimney. It looks fairly easy but is there a certain technique to keeping water from getting behind the vinyl next to the chimney? Is this even going to be an issue. Will I need to flash around it or do I need to just rely on caulking, if so whats the best method?

Thanks

Hello StevenC:
You may want to lay a bead of silicone caulk next to the chimney and seat the J-channel in that for a waterproof seal.
