Link2SD only shifts your apps to the sdcard via /mnt/asec. SD-ext can only be made with a second partition.

Link2SD does not automatically make that 2nd partition for you. You have to partition your SD card via your PC or CWM.

Anyway, what's the point if you are using Link2SD only to shift apps? There isn't much to worry about.
I am currently away to study for exams, so please do not PM me for anything.

Fat32 doesn't work. Try creating an ext partition as the second partition. Do post the result. Hope I Helped
