Linking directories

To link one or more directories to another directory use the command:

   ln -s directory_name(s) directory_name

The use of the -s option indicates that this is to be a symbolic link. Only the super-user is allowed make hard links between directories.

As a user you are restricted to creating symbolic links between directories using the -s option.
