The jacking points I use is at the 4 plastic moulded points on the
rocker panel. My jack has a rubber pad attached to a flat saddle, so no
damage occurs. For support points, IIRC is somewhere on the subframe,
again I use rubber pads to prevent damage.

If you are willing to spend the $$, Steve D sells some pretty nice jacks
and stands http://www.ultimategarage.com/acjacks.html
