Domain mapping - with custom subdir

Hi, domain mapping works great, but I want to add a directory to the end of the path. Example:

Main wordpress install on: example.com
Networked blog on: blog1.example.com
Domain mapped to: blog1.com
And now we want to have a custom subdir: blog1.com/shop/ with some files that will lead to some separate html files.

First I thought that it was as easy as adding a dir/files to the blogs.dir/2/ directory but it appears it isn't. Any ideas/suggestions?

    Greetings jorgjansen,

    Thank you for the additional input, it is certainly appreciated.

    I am referring to the regular method of creating a sub directory like a normal web site installation and creating a redirect to catch the domain specific url.

    For example, physically create the sub directory/folder blog1.com/shop/

    Then use an htaccess or hosting control panel to enforce the redirect, htaccess would look something like:

    Redirect 301 /shop http://realsubsite.url.com

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe
