I've added a simple "Link List".
When I search, the Search Core Result webpart displays a list from all results. But the hyperlink which is generated points to the LinkItem, not to the real URL.

is this possible without using Managed Property as described here ?

No, unfortunately, your best bet is to use xslt scripts which enable you to modify the search result display of your search query.

    Hello, and welcome to SPSE. I'm afraid signatures in answers are generally frowned upon; especially those linking to a commercial site. Please see the signatures FAQ

@rfarqleet is correct. I have never done this in such a capacity but here is a good place to start: moss-2007-customize-the-search-result-using-xslt-part-3-customize-using-sharepoint-designer-2007

More info can be found by googling: "customizing search results using XSLT"
