Need help with oil leak

I noticed about 15/20 drops of oil that have accumilated over time in the driveway. Roughly about 3/4 weeks...I looked under the truck and it looks like the oil is coming from the front of the engine, running down the head gasket area, and then dripping off the trans/starter area. From up top I can't see anything leaking. Both sides, but more oil looks to have accumilated around the passenger side near the starter.
Any idea what it could be, where to start checking???

BTW: I'm a newbie 6.0 PSD owner and kinda worried.

it is possible to have a intercooler boot seeping oil and run down by the starter from the top, something else ive seen on a 07 is the rear engine cover gasket leaking around the starter area ,07 arent usually bad for leaks as the earlier models , just for the record , a diesel engine can leak a little and is no big deal,ford diesel engines have seeped oil since they came out in 84, you could probably slide under 90% oif every 6.0 on the street and see some oil seepage around the bellhousing area
