Default Oil pan gasket replacement

I have an oil leak which I am fairly sure is coming from my oil pan gasket..I have the 2.5L engine.. What's involved in putting a new gasket on?? Besides removing all the bolts on the pan. Can the pan be removed w/o taking anything else off or is there more to it???
