Another dizzy install question

Can someone tell me the correct way to install the Distro please. I installed a new gear drive and have both timing marks aligned (Crank at 12 and cam at 6 ) and I have always thought this was #1 TDC. Now I am confused as I am reading that this is #6 TDC and I need to rotate the crank once to bring both marks to 12 position and this is #1 TDC. Can one of you straighten me out on this please. Also when we do install the distro the rotor should roughly be pointing between 6 and 7 oclock position which is at the #1 plug wire right? Some people are saying to point it at the #1 piston and I have never heard of this. Any help on this is much appreciated as I am now frustrated and confused with all the different opinions on the install.
