Apache alias point to mounted windows share

Ok I'm running SuSE 9.1 pro on my compaq laptop and playing with apache at the moment.

All i want to do is set up an alias to point towards a mounted windows share at /mnt/net/johnpc/audio (this is visible in /etc/mtab)

The following is what I have added to httpd.conf

Alias /music /mnt/net/johnpc/audio

<Directory /mnt/net/johnpc/audio>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

When i try to access this i get

Access forbidden!
You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.

The permissions on the folder are set to 755
And the autoindex module is turned on so I shouldn't have to create an index file should i?

I'd appreciate any help anyone can provide.
