How do I create a shortcut of my windows files on the desktop?
 
I have installed Linux Mint 7 using Wubi. The Windows files are located at /host hence /host = c:\. How can I Make a shortcut of my windows vista username folder. C:\users\<Username>\ or /host/users/<Username>/ to the desktop? That way i can get quick assess to my files. I also need them to be read write (/host folder already is so the shortcut would need to be as well).

Assuming you have the proper entry in your fstab file to mount whatever partition C:\ is on to /host:
ln -s /host/users/<Username>/ ~/Desktop/Windows

will create a symbolic link to your Vista username folder on your desktop named Windows.
