Just connect the negative lead to an engine bracket or large bolt on the engine where it won't get in the way of turning the car over. When you jump it let your car run a few minutes before trying to start the other vehicle. One other thingin the vehicle being jumped, make sure that key is NOT TURNED ON when connecting the jumper cables as this can damage the computer in the jumped car.
