Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've inherited the maintenance of a file distribution server running Apache 2.2.3. The servers root is currently mapped to an external SAN device at /mnt/sandd2/, and the security on that SAN device doesn't allow any write or execute privs (I can't even create folders on it).
I'm now being asked to make a couple of changes that require a PERL script accessed via Apache (simple web service to generate and return file lists with more detail than the standard Apache index), and need to map /cgi-bin/ to /var/www/cgi-bin/, while maintaining the root at its current location.
So how to I map a subfolder to a location outside of the already-defined website root? I went googling and reading tfm, but all of the documentation I found referred to setting up multiple virtual hosts (which I don't need) and not virtual directories within a single host (which I do need).
I'd appreciate any help, or at least any pointers to the correct documentation, that anyone can provide.
