Contractor vs Consultant

I read a discussion thread on Slashdot the other day where some developers were discussing taking on "consulting" and "contracting" jobs. My understanding is that both of these terms imply an individual selling his services as a programmer on his own terms as opposed to working for an employer.

What is the difference between these two: "consulting" and "contracting"?
