Greetings, Mike Rushton!

> I found this on a Cygwin Facebook Users Group, it shows how to create

>> You can create native symlinks under WinXP, but they are not usable.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

LinkShellExt tool mentioned in the article will only allow to create hard links
(for files and folders) or junction points (for folders) under WinXP.
Using system API calls directly, it is possible to create symbolic link under
WinXP, but access to the created link will be denied by system.

Also, I would really appreciate, if you don't top-post.
