creating hard link problem
 
Hello,
I want to create hard link between 2 dirs. because of linux reinstallation i copy whole directory to windows partition of linux kernel source but as windows not store links now i am not able to have
/usr/src/linux-2.4.24/include/asm directory which is when entered into it goes to dir
/usr/src/linux-2.4.24/include/asm-i386
that mean i want to create link asm dir that points to asm-i386 in include dir.

since hard link is a copy of an inode and inodes are tied into directories you can't hardlink directories
use soft link (that's the way it was originally a soft link)
ls -s <target> <linkmame>

you ment:

ln -s <target> <linkmame>

right?
