I'm in the process of changing my head gaskets. I got the right head bolted down and now I'm trying to install the intake and exhaust camshafts. Are they supposed to be installed in a certain position or does it not matter?

Do you have the factory manual? It specifies how to set the cams and how to rotate them in order to be correct.

OK good. I don't have it around but I know it specifies how to set down each cam, in terms of angles (degrees) and it distinguishes between left and right side. I was only doing the seals once but kept on reading out of morbid curiosity.

Trying to upload pg166 from the manual for a 2002 turbo 2,0L. MODEL YEARS WILL VARY SO LOOK ONLY AT YOUR SPECIFIC YEAR. Also, this isn't enough to get you out of the woods I think; hope you get the manual. This will give you an idea of the instructions involved but only a general idea.

When measuring degrees, am I going from the center of the block or the front of the cam shaft? one has to be set at 77 degrees and the other is 11. I have them set at the moment from measuring from the front of each shaft. But the illustration seems like its measured from the center of the head or block.
