Setup Projects and .lnk Shortcuts

I know .NET setup projects use "Windows Installer" shortcuts instead of
ordinary shortcuts, but I'm having trouble with those, so I'd like to
hard-code some ordinary shortcuts in the user's start menu. The problem
is, the setup project will let me put every kind of file in the start
menu except .lnk files. The one file type I need is the one file type
which seems to be rejected.

Perhaps there is some trick I don't know about. For the experienced
..NET developers out there: Is there any way to use a setup project to
put a .lnk shortcut in the start menu?
