It's not that easy, because .lnk files contains not only the targeted
file, but also some parameters. These parameters aren't needed by linux,
so we could ignore them... but we would loose information.

Are you talking about umsdos over vfat ? I haven't found information
on it... but it would be better than umsdos over fat, because only
uid/gid would have to be stored in an external file (and we need to
add some case sensitiveness stuff...)
