Iptable rule sequence

A packet in Iptables is treated in a certain chain sequence, as I have understood. I would like to know what chains apply in what order, and if anyone knows about any good illustrations of this on the net?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've attached a picture with the default iptables flow to this comment.

For a basic tutorial on iptables see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo
Some sections are Ubuntu specific, but iptables and its parameters is equal for all Linux distributions.

For a very complete and in depth tutorial see: http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.net/iptables-tutorial.html
