symlink from ares download folder
I just installed ares using wine and its working fine... but i dont want my files to be downloaded to /.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Ares Lite Edition/My Shared Folder
instead id like then to go to someplace like /windows/D/new crap/

Its my understanding that I need to somehow create a simlink of from "My Shared Folder" to the "new crap" folder but i have no idea how thats gotta be done :S Any help please?

ok easy, rename as so

/windows/D/My Shared Folder
delete the my shared dir in this one..........

/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Ares Lite Edition/

ln -s /windows/D/My Shared Folder /.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Ares Lite Edition/
the My shared dir is in windows/D but the symlink shows up in /.wine/blah/blah
