Question 2006 Kia Rio Radiator Drain Plug?

I am about to embark on one of my first DIY task. I hope I'm not about to jump in over my head. I just need confirmation on where the radiator drain plug is. My Kia Rio is a 2006, manual transmission.

There is a screw, positioned in the center of the car, that seems directly below the radiator. It is a Philips head screw, and fits snug into something. Is this the drain plug? Thank you for your help.

Thank you, and sorry for the sparse information. That site is fantastic.

I have Rio 2005. The drain plug is at the bottom of the Rad. It is red color, made of plastic and has Phillips head. I use a large flat head screw driver to remove it.
