If it is *below* the head gasket area, the only thing
I can think of that coolant could leak out of would be
the freeze plugs.

They will look like two or three (can't remember
exactly) circular indents in the block.  They are
supposed to kind of pop out, see recent posts for
removal tips.

I hope that is all it is.
