In Unix OS, we can create a symbolic link, like:

ln -s file.old file.new

In Window NT, can we do something like that? The shortcut won't work. This is very important for Administrator since he can assign file access to certain user.

what I want to accomplish is to assign file access from say /cgi-bin/user.dat to some users in another directory so that he/she can read/write to this file. Thanks

Sorry, there is no such functionality in NT. You have to go with Groups / Policies

There is an effort going on to port Un*x functionality to NT.
It is called the gnuwin32 project done by cygnus.

There you'll find a symbolic link feature.
