Hard links on a UDF file system

This is just a post back from my earlier question.
I discovered that my "direct to disc" utility creates a UDF file system 
on my DVD burner. I never realised these utilities used something of a 
standard... Anyway that allowed me to experiment with UDF on my XP machine.

XP has the fsutil functions (that were not available under Win2K with 
the REV drive was)

So after formatting the disc with UDF I gave it a try and discovered 
that it truly is windows that imposes the restriction
[/cygdrive/e]$ fsutil hardlink create link file
The FSUTIL utility requires a local NTFS volume.
