How to flash/trim-out new construction window?

I'm installing a vinyl window in a house w/wood siding and after enlarging the window-opening. After the framing is done, what are the proper steps to flash and trim the window?
A contractor I used to work for used to cut the wood-siding about 1" larger than the opening (large enough for the new construction window to fit), caulk the hell out of it and then install the trim. The only thing protecting the building from the elements is this trim.
So what's the proper way? Remove the siding , flash the top and sides with something like bithuthene (sp?), then re-instal the siding, and trim? Can someone please enlighten me. Thanks.
