    Hi all,

    I have a powerpoint file (.pps) that i have to put on a usb drive that is formatted for windows (FAT 32) I have tried to make an alias, but when its placed on the FAT 32 drive, it becomes a unix executable file and opens in terminal on my mac and in the windows machine, not at all. Does anyone know of a trick or app that would let me make a shortcut to a file that can open on a FAT 32 (windows) drive? Outside of running windows on my MBP?

    Actually i think i might have figured this one out. Forgot about symbolic links. i installed symboliclinker....seems like it might do the trick. have to wait to see. but looks promising.
