If I want to give someone a jump start, do I do it from the engine bay or the battery itself?

I was reading that there were problems when connecting to the battery, but it wasn't clear if this only applied when jump starting the XC70 or also while jump starting another car from the XC70. Wanted to get some clarification on how to go about this before I risked creating expensive electrical problems.

I wouldn't, but if it's an emergency, do it off the post in the engine compartment

Yeah, I have jumped many cars with my XC. No problems just use the post under the hood and put the ground on one of your strut mount bolts...
