Yes, you are missing something obvious.  Do this:

Alias /doc/ /usr/share/doc/			# This is my path to the docs.
												# I suggest you check out 
												#, for the 
												# Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, and
												# move yours to a more appropriate 
												# location

<Location /doc>
	order deny,allow
	deny from all							# keep the aliens away from my
												# stuff
	allow from	# you may want to include other 		
												# hosts from your LAN
	Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Multiviews		# Be sure you haven't 
												# disabled Indexes globally.

You will get the root of your doc tree.  Just click the links to go the
docs you want.  What could be more convenient?
