If you'd like to add aliases, as Eric suggested, read this document:

There are other solutions as well:
Under Windows XP, on NTFS file system, it's possible to create hard
links to the desired files, if they are located on the same volume as
your Apache DocumentRoot. It can be done with the following command:
fsutil hardlink create %APACHE_DOCUMENT_ROOT%\whateverfilename.ext

For directories, you can create "junction points", with a SysInternals
tool, "junction".

Choose the one which is more convenient for you in your situation.
