Would a bind mount work for you? Man mount, and investigate the 'bind'

Subject: [Samba] Symlinks and roaming profiles

Hi all,
   Has anyone else had trouble (or not) with symlinks created in root
preexec scripts and roaming profile directories? I'm trying to add a
"shared links" director (symlink) to everyone's favorites, and I get
error loading profiles where a symlink loop is forming (ends up with
something like "cannot copy
xxx\profile\favorites\favorites\favorites\favorites\...."). The symlink
is OK when viewed from a console.

any ideas
