    You can only create soft links to link directories (which is what you really want). Do:

    ln -s folder1 folder2

    i would reccomend to do man ln.
    as you can work with hardl link and soft link as per requirment.
    if link is in same file system then both can be used, else you need to go with soft link.

    as per my knowlede soft link will create two indoes for 2 file.
    whereas hard link only 1, which will be used by both.
    still man ln is best option
