Check the man page for `ln` as I think that's what you're looking for. I seem to remember a similar problem I had back in school...

Can u elaborate on what you are trying to do?

For symbolic links(ln -s): 1 is the real file, while the other is just a link to the real file.
If you have both files dd & cc that already exist & are different files, you cannot link them this way.
