Warning: NOOB question follows -
I have recently installed Mint 16 KDE 64-bit on my ustawas XP machine (i7-920/24GB RAM). Seems to work. For years I have had my Windows computers set up in a certain way and need to translate that to Linux. SO,
OK, lemme throw sumthin out to the Linux Gurus here. I have a set of folders in my Windows 7 system that act as menus and contain shortcuts to other folders and programs. This is mostly because 7 doesn't allow more than one taskbar. I had XP set up with 4. For example, one folder is called "Tech Daily" and contains web shortcuts to many sites I read daily. It also contains shortcuts to data folders and some programs that apply.
Question: how do I reproduce this in Linux? I have already figured out how to mount and access my Windows data disk (D). It looks like I'm gonna hafta have a whole new set of shortcuts for Linux, since the syntax is totally different. Also, can I link the music or picture contents of D to the corresponding folders in my Linux Home folder? Or, do I have to delete the Linux/Home folders and replace them with hard links to directories on D?
I don't need direct answers, just a link or two to where to start studying. Prolly gonna be a loooooooooooong process.
