Howdy all. I need a gentle shove in the right direction on this one.

When processing a child theme, which ends up getting executed by  
WordPress first, the child or the parent functions.php?  And, parallel  
to this, if I have action or filter hooks registered in the parent,  
what's the best way to ensure that my child theme can override/alter  
the parent's functions?
