The land was essentially Cao Cao's land so it was whom ever grabs it first. Zhuge Liang managed saw that Zhou Yu had "died" and Cao Ren took the advantage to he acted. Perfectly reasonable.

Cao Ren was in charge of the defense of Jiang Ling. I think the novel mentioned that Xiahou Dun was in Xiang Liang but he only gets a passing mention so it looks like Cao Ren was in overall command of the area.

I dont think so, in the novel, Zhuge Liang orders to take Jingzhou after Zhou Yu have failed to conquer Jingzhou, not before it.

Zhou Yu was not a spiteful man, but he was a very competetive one and that made him look spiteful. Zhuge Liang wasn't a saint but he was one of best guys around. If you have any doubts about Kongming, then get your head out og SGZ and read Way Of The General.

I don't get what you all see in SGZ. One man in such a time as then couldn't possibly know as much as you think Chen Shi did.
