Question [Q] Help with creating symlinks on SD card

I'm trying to sync ebooks and bookmarks (.mobi and .mbp files) between Kindle for PC and Kindle for Android,for books I've converted from PDF/ePubs/... (so no Whispersync function for those :( ),using Dropbox.

Kindle for PC has an option to choose folder for storing files,so PC no need for symlink on my PC. The problem is the Android app. Books are stored on /sd/kindle. I would like to symlink /sdcard/kindle to /sdcard/dropbox/Public/Kindle books,but have no idea how to do it on Android phone. So if someone could help me out?

My Desire is rooted,S-ON,using Z v0.5 ROM...
