The ln utility (see the man page for details):
Code:
ln -s target link_name
or
ln -s target
Where the first form creates a link to the target with the name link_name; the second form creates a link to the target in the current working directory (which can also be done with ln -s target . as with the first form).

Hope this helps some.

The Slackbook has a great section on symlinks.
