configure apache to include mounted folder in linux

I have a linux box which is running apache / php. When I browse the machine http://123.123.123.123, the apache root folder is the /var/www/html folder. That works fine.

I have a bunch of files in the "/mnt/sdb1" folder which is a partition on another hard drive in the computer. I'd like to expose this folder on the web so I can go http://123.123.123.123/record/aaaa.zip in order to download /mnt/sdb1/aaaa.zip from my linux box.

How do I configure apache to do that?
