locating oil pan plug on 94 530i

I'm attempting my first oil change on a '94 530i but don't know where exactly the location of the oil pan plug. Once found what should I use to remove it (17mm wrench)?
I saw two holes close to each other at the bottom center area just past front wheels. One was a cover screw but wasn't sure what the other was for. I have my jack stands, lift, oil, filter, rags, and oil disposal pan.

I want to try changing the oil using this method first and then probably via the dip stick later. Any assistance you provide a first timer is appreciated.
