I'm trying to make a link from one local document to another.

<p>
<a href="C:\Documents and Settings\********\Desktop">
This text</a> is a link to my other html document.
</p>

When i open this with firefox and i click on that link it gives me this message "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol(c) isn't associated with any program"
Now i went into the properties of for the document that it won't open and i put firefox as the program it should open with. Any help?
