Actually, if you use Alias, you don't need to put the path under the
Docroot. If the L-disk is mounted on your machine and can be read by any
user then there should be no reason apache can't read it...

Your setup does have one potential bug - you are using trailing
slashes... If you read the documentation page for "Alias" it says:

Try it without the trailing slashes, i.e.

	Alias /test1 "L:/temp"
