Painting Drywall

What is the best intial covering for drywall. Some say a primer, or a sealer. One book I've read says a flat latex paint works better than either for your first coat. Any ideas?

I find a good oil based primer, like Kilz works well with a quality latex paint. The primer is important to level out the taped areas and field areas, patches, etc. I use the Kilz stain blocker to prep after repairing and patching plaster walls.
