creating folder shortcuts
 
I'm trying to create a shortcut to some of the folders I open use in Linux but are buried deep in the folder structure. How do I do this? Note this isn't a program shortcut, it's a FOLDER shourtcut.

I'm using Fedora 3.

ln -s <target folder> <link name>

the best thing to do is use the command line.

here is the basic command
Code:

ln -s TARGET... DIRECTORY
this is called a symbolic link
you can get more info by either reading the manual
Code:

man ln
or by using
Code:

ln --help
hope that this helps.
