Just few additional comments:
You must be RDP on the box where SSRS is running from and start SSRS Configuration manager from there;
Your users must still type in http://servername/mynewurl or to access report server or report manager.

Yes, sure, http://servername/newVirtualDir

unless you could use IIS create your virtual directory and let it forward the requests to that SSRS URL.
