Question apache 2, rootdirectory must be a direcotry...?

Ok, it appears that I can't use any dir other than /var/www/html - i want to use say /mnt/www to store the data on another partition but it refuses, saying that "documentroot must be a direcotry". Even if i mount it as /var/www/html it still gives me the V sign. Any ideas? I'm kinda stumped here!

Are you using SELinux? If so you may need to allow apache to access the directory you wish to have as the new document root.
