If they are webservers, use mod_proxy, e.g.

ProxyPass		/second http://second-server/
ProxyPassReverse	/second http://second-server/

this will map http://first-server/second/file to

Alternatively, if you can mount the remote disks on a filesystem level,
you can just put the paths to the disks in the DocumentRoot. You can run
Samba on the Unix server then you can mount it (i.e. "share" it) on the
NT server.
