Using Sharepoint 2007.

I've created a links list and have selected it for display in a web part.  I want the title I've given the link to be hyperlinked to the URL that is against that title in the list.  How do I list this?  The column options I have only provide hyperlinks back to the list item:
   Links      
   Edit (link to edit item)      
   ID      
   Title      
   Title (linked to item with edit menu)      
   Title (linked to item)
   Version  

Thank you!

easiest way I can think of would be opening up sharepoint designer and creating a dataview. Do you have sharepoint designer? Are you comfortable opening it up?

If you need more assistance with what to do once in there I can provide.

Ok thanks for responding. Was really hoping it would be a standard links list feature. I don't have Designer (end user in a locked down corporate deployment) so I'll probably use HTML in a Content Editor Web Part unless there is another suggestion.

yea you can show the title with URL or just the URL as a link but having the title as a hyperlink to the actual url I'm not sure of a way to do it in the browser.
