Can Equinox jump start another car?

My friend was needing a jump and I told him that my new Equinox doesn't have a "remote nagative terminal". I know there is 1 positive remote terminal to receive a jump (and use the engine mount as the negative)... How do I give a jump with the battery inside the case?

There should be a positive terminal with a cap near the battery.

Normally if I give a jump, my positive goes to other car's positive; my negative connects to the engine block on the other car. The problem is that there isn't a negative terminal that I can connect the jump cable on my Equinox.

There is a postive terminal around the middle of the endine with a cap and for negitive, just use the metal piece of anything under the hood, engine mountes, or i usually use the bolt that holds the struts or springs

There is a ground tab near the positive jumpstart box on the drivers side near the power steering resivoir. The ground tab has "grd" writtten on it.

:banghead: I could not figure out what you meant. I just did a search and there is a good photo of this posted here:
