cant make a "shortcut" in linux??

Im trying to make a shortcut to Neverwinter Nights, but can make a shortcut..

I thought the command to make a shortcut is this..

[[email protected] trey]$ su
Password:
[[email protected] trey]# ln -S /home/games/nwn/nwn /bin/nwn
ln: accessing `/bin/nwn': No such file or directory
[[email protected] trey]#

but i get this error? what am i doing wrong??

btw// the nwn start up file is a shell script.. that has to be launched in the nwn directory any idea how to make this work?
