How can you link directories on different logical drives?

Ok, here's my question...

I have been asked by one of our devs to see if this is possible.  It doesn't sound unreasonable, but I don't know how to do it exactly, so I thought I'd ask.

I want to know how to link directories on separate logical drives on Win2k3... for instance.

Drive 0 contains C:
Drive 1 contains D:

I want c:\directory to point to Drive 0 (like normal)
but I want to make c:\directory\subdirectory actually open to a directory on D: on Drive 1.

so:
C:\Directory\Subdirectory => D:\Directory2\Subdirectory4

I hope this makes sense.  Let me know if I need to clarify more.

You can use NTFS junction points to do this:
