1997 Toyota camry timing belt replace?

My Toyota had an oil pooring out of the engine. The oil pump housing was leaking so I pulled it apart without setting any timing marks. Know it is time to put it togeather and I have set the everything to the right marks again. How many marks do I have to line up? Is it just the cam and the crank timing mark?

As uk asks, depends on the engine; the 4 banger is the easier of the available engines. Only two marks to line up, crank and cam. Crank lines up to tdc marker on timing belt cover, cam lines up (if I remember right) through a small alignment hole in the cam gear to a raised mark on the head. Word of advice while you're in there - change the water pump.
