Oil pan repair

I found out today that my trusty '90 300SE has a crack in the oil pan. My tech said it'd cost about $400. I think I might tackle this one myself.

Has anyone ever done this? Do I need a hoist to lift the engine up or can I lift it with a jack? If so, where do I place the jack? Do I need to disconnect the exhaust? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
