does anyone know how to work around this problem?



*	The Microsoft term for this feature is "reparse point" 
*	The command is called junction.exe 
*	Downloadable from
*	Limitations: 
		- Works only on Win2k and NTFS5 or greater
		- Deals with absolute symlinks only - no relative symlinks
		- Doesn't work on network drives or FAT filesystems
*	The order of arguments is reversed from the UNIX ln command. The
syntax is: 
              junction.exe destination source
