felt paper under the siding

I'm enclosing my porch and installing vinyl siding to match the rest of the hose.
Can anyone offer any tips for installing felt paper around the window/door rough opening?
I've seen how to install Tyvek around the window/door rough opening(wrapping it around rough opening) but not sure if the same applies to the felt.

Thanks in advance

I'm not using Tyvek because I see no need to buy 150 ft of it when I need 20 ft at the most

You can buy a 50' roll of Tyvek at most supply houses. I wouldn't advocate using tarpaper under siding, as it doesn't breathe as does Tyvek.
