How about:

    If you want a separate Drupal installation under a subdirectory (such
    as www.example.com/site3), it's important that the subdirectory exists
    and refers back to the primary location of your Drupal install. For
    example, if your primary installation is located in the directory
    'www.example.com', then the following shell command run in the
    'www.example.com' directory would create a symlink for 'site3':

      ln -s . site3

There's no Windows related text here (re: junctions) primarily because we 
caution the user at the beginning of the file that, in essence, "good luck 
with Windows configurations, bub."

If the above looks fine, let me know. I profess to not knowing enough 
about multisites or symlinks /in detail and confidence/, so I'm requesting 
feedback before patching.
