    how do i change icons for symbolic links


    I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the icon for a symbolic link? I tried doing it the win(lose)dows way and it changes every shell script to the same (for ex: firefox) icon.
    There has to be a way and I know some genius out there will say "what a retard" and give me the answer.
    Thanks---------

    well .. as far as i know .. when you change the icon for a symbolic link ( by right-clicking on it and selecting Properties then clicking the icon image button ), the actual file/folder ( to which it is linked ) icon gets changed as well.

    I really did not understand .. what you meant by changing every shell-script icon. This happens ONLY for shell-script ??
