Parenting Objects

I hope this is the right section for this query, as I couldn’t find any command in ny tollbars for it.

Does anyone know how to parent and object to another, for example I want to make an animation of a Skeleton and make the arms and legs move if I move the top bit I want the leg and foot to move with it, but still be bale to move the independantly as well. I can do this on a 3D program but I was wondering if it’s possible on Flash.

Any help will be much appreciated.
