Power Steering Leak at tank

Somewhere around the resivour the powersteering fluid is leaking quickly. I noticed it after a 'hard turn' and am fairly thankful at this point that the pump seems ok. My question is...can you identify where or what the actual fix would be. Its a pretty good mess - and its ONLY on the absolute driver side.

I can add larger pics if it would help - please let me know what pic would need blown up.

What is the common issue and fix?

actually if he has a hydroboost system ( not sure of the year they started them) it is behind the master cylinder (between master cylinder and the brake booster) I just blew a line on mine and lost every bit of powersteering fluid and thus lost both power steering AND brakes. There actually is a TSB for 2006-2006 trucks for an issue with one of the hoses leaking. I still need to buy a new hose and fix mine, but been too busy with other crap around the house. here is the TSB info

Forgive me - what is the TSB? I have a 2004 - its it Technical Service Bulitin. They did check that last time for me, but the one I see for this unit is for 2005-2006. I should probably call the dealer with the vin to be sure. Its certainly frustrating - I wanted to get a hardtop cover for the truck this morning- now I am waiting with it down @ the repair shop. I need to get a better list from them on Monday explaining more of what they feel needs to happen in order to better answer what they are replacing, but in a nutshell - they said the Hydroboost unit needed replaced. I have not idea the time/skill/tools needed to diagnose or replace that unti.
