drain plugs are located at the lower back portion of the radiator. use your fingers to un screw it. if it is too hard, use a mechanical pliers. just be careful of the hot water.

The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.
Most drain plug is make of inexpensive nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.
The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.
Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant
I just did a FREE write up on air purge from coolant system and how to detect initial state of blown head gasket at the Fixya tip selection.

on the large hose on the bottom of the radiator, remove the clamp, take off the hose, they come off hard try it with a channel lock , or get a small screwdriver inbetween the hose and radiator, if you cant get it , cut it with a sharp knife real close to the radiator, if it is a factory clamp get a new hose clamp
