Hello

I saw an article about securing the wallet.dat (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Securing_your_wallet).

My doubt is how to create the symlink on a Mac 10.7 (Lion).


1: Create an encrypted DMG (˜1mb) inside DropBox.
2: With Bitcoin closed, put Wallet.dat (it's inside user/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin) inside the DMG.
3: Create a symlink from Wallet.dat (inside DMG) on user/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin.

Now, how do I crate the symlink inside user/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin so Bitcoin will use it?
