Another popular list question. And this answer, which I saved because I ask 
myself this question everytime I change them, comes from a list email a few 
years ago and gives credit to John Twist:
"The good gaskets are supplied with the silver, 
metal side and an asbestos side.  The SILVER 
side is fitted DOWN so that the more flexible    
ASBESTOS is fitted UP against the manifold. I 
usually coat the metal band of the gasket, as 
well as the corresponding section of the exhaust 
pipe with nickle anti-seize so that it is easily 
removed next time..."

Which end is up for the gaskets between the exhaust pipes and the exhaust 
manifold?  The metal side or the sooty material side?
