oil leak

just found an oil leak, really a small drip on my garage floor coming from the rear of my car somewhere. I have an 04 boxster s. I do not have any other problems with it and it is running fine. since it is still under warranty, it is going into the dealer tomorrow. I have read this board and other boards (porsche pete's) and everyone seems to say its a rear main seal problem. We will see when I get it to the dealer.
Hopefully its not bad. I have read everything from its just a seal problem that can be fixed to it may need a new engine. Hopefully the dealwer will tell.
any opinions?

If it is in the middle and towards the back, my money is on the RMS.

Warranty issue, no problems for you!
