DON'T USE A GASKET. Sure, you can if you want, but let me repeat: DON'T USE A GASKET. Use RightStuff--you can get it at most any auto store. Clean both surfaces really good, then run a bead of rightstuff all the way around the oil pan, install. Easy. Tons of us do it this way and will never bother with a gasket there again.

Yeah, I don't know a single LR tech that uses anything else either!
