Yes, it is possible to jump start postive ground from negative and vice versa.  
Just make sure 
that _NO_ parts of the cars are in contact with each other.  Then, make sure 
you connect your 
positive to the other cars positive, and your car's negative to the other car's 
negative.  If car 
parts happened to be touching (bumpers, doors, etc.), then you might have some 
Otherwise, not a problem at all.
