It turns out all hard links will be deleted after user log off. The
file system is: `type ncpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)' as I am running
Emacs on my Univ's server.
Is there any reason to choose hard link over symbolic link?
All regular files are hard links.  A hard link is just a name for a
file on disk.  "emacs" is one name for the executable and
"emacs-22.0.92" is another name for the same executable.  There's no
concept of one being a link to the other, they are both names for
the same file on disk.  If "all hard links" are deleted, then both
"emacs" and "emacs-22.0.92" will be deleted, along with all your
other files.

Then I don't know what's going on. 'emacs' is deleted but
'emacs-22.0.92' is not.

Any other files I created using 'ln' will also be deleted.

"Hard link" usually means a file with a link count greater than 1.
