creating virtual links?


I want to create a "directory" within my home directory that actually points to a directory another directory.

For example: I want my Linux UT2003 installation to look for maps/textures/etc in my windows installation on my other disk. I've got gigs of data that I'd hate to duplicate.

So what I'm asking for is for /home/mydir/ut2003/Maps to point to /mnt/windows/ut2003/Maps and to make this a permanent link.

TIA,
Justin

Hollerith reports:

Symbolic links are made with the ln command.
