How to create a folder link, or alias (as its called in Mac OSX)

I am soon to reinstall my dual boot setup i had with my laptop with Ubuntu and windows 7.
Now what i have done is i have created a small 50gb partition for windows 7 and Ubuntu to share that hey will both automatically mount at boot. It will contain my downloads, music, videos, pictures, documents and such from (on Ubuntu) my home folder and on windows 7 the folders in my name folder or whatever its called that hold all those things, I've already got them linked in Ubuntu but i cant figure it out in windows 7, any one got an idea?

I don't have a way to check right now, but in Windows 7, if you open Disk Management, I believe right click on the partition it will give you an option of adding a Drive letter or mounting in an empty NTFS folder. You add a folder to your Windows 7 partition then select it to mount for the additional partition.
