NOT TRUE!!!!!!!!!

how about this.

lrd---------  filename1  >..\newfolder\junk

Then when you try to logto the current folder + ..\newfolder\junk

it may come back and say FAILURE because it's not a folder. Well, I say SO WHAT.
It could be yet ANOTHER LINK that points to as many chained links as the system
operator wants and then finally at the bottom of the dirt pile it could then
point to a FOLDER!!!!

DONT ASSUME
