directory pointing to another

1) My first question is "How do you get one directory to point to another?" Thats
the best way I can phrase it. Is there another vocabulary word for it? I'm
using Konqueror and on some folder icons I can see an arrow in the bottom left
corner. when I get the Properties for that folder it says that it is pointing
to another folder. I'm guessing that this is a way to create another name
(alias) for the directory.

2) For my second question I'm trying to install Qt Embedded. Somebody told me this:

"-lqte qte is Qt/Embedded library you shell link to qt."

When he says "shell link" does he mean what I'm talking about in the first question?

It is called symlinking,
ln -s target link
meaning creting link that points to target
And yes, 2) is related to 1)
