I've never heard of anyone having problems jumping cars as long as the cables are put on correctly.

One trick to make sure you don't hook the batteries up backwards is to NOT put the ground clamp on the ground post. Clip the ground clip on to a metal (non moving) spot under the hood and hook the positive directly to the battery. Now, if you get the positive backwards you'll simply short out the battery (big sparks) and will have less of a chance of damaging anything by reversing the polarities.
