Symlinks and AFP

I switched from using SMB to AFP because almost everytime with SMB when I first clicked on my movie folder and it would give me a error, then I would have to exit and click it again for it to work(if theres a way to fix that it would be awesome!). With AFP it does not give that error but now i have a new problem, I used symbolic links with SMB to link my two network drives together but apparently AFP doesnt see those symlinks and they are seperate. Is there a way to fix either of those problems?
