Is there a relatively painless way to jump start another
car using a 2000 Buick LeSabre?

The battery of a LeSabre is under the rear seat. There's a remote positive terminal under the hood that makes it easy to jump start the LeSabre, but I'm not sure how to jump start another car using the LeSabre without opening up the rear seat and using relatively long jumper cables, which is pretty tricky to pull off if even possible. A friend said that instead of connecting the negative terminal of the live battery to the engine block of the dead car I could just connect the negative terminal of the dead battery to the engine block of the live car, but I'm not sure how safe and/or effective that is. Anybody have any ideas?
