You will have to remove the mounting bracket that holds the engine up. It is more than a motor mount, it is the brace under the car that the engine rests on. For about 80 bucks, you can buy a frame that sits where you hood normally does to hold the engine up when you remove this brace.

Changing the gasket itself is simple.. drain the oil, unbolt the oil pan from the bottom of the engine, use some aerosol gasket remover and remove all traces of the old gasket, slap the new gasket on with some RTV, and reattach the oil pan to the engine block. Not a whole lot to it. The trouble lies in getting to it... on a lot of cars, you'll actually have to remove the engine from the engine compartment in order to do this.
