Using drill chuck in a lathe

>I was going to try drilling a hole in a blank by mounting a drill chuck on my lathe. Do you usually mount the drill chuck in the headstock and fix the block on the tailstock, or vice versa? I've seen methods where people have done both.

Also, does anyone have any action shots of a drawbar holding a drill chuck in a lathe? I think I know what I need to do for this, but it's nice to be sure.
