Pull ups and chin ups

I have always had a goal of being able to do chin ups and pull ups. I can do a quarter one...:S Am I better off doing a few months of PHUL to build strength before attempting to work on them? I'm pretty weak in the lower body department. Or do you think I could add it into my program somewhere?...
