Need help configuring apache

In this configuration file I added in /etc/httpd/conf.d, lets call it application.conf, and for some cgi scripts found outside the document root for the apache server, lets call the foreign folder /path/to/scripts/outside/documentroot, I'd like to know how to get it where the user types in http://www.website.com/name/application.cgi and it will run the script?

I've been playing around with something like:
$ cat > /etc/httpd/conf.d/application.conf
ScriptAlias /name/ "/path/to/scripts/outside/documentroot"
<Location /name/>
PassEnv SOME_ENV
</Location>

$ /etc/init.d/httpd restart

But it doesn't work. Is a good use of scriptalias? Should I use the directory directive instead? I have Apache/2.2.3. Please help, thanks

NAME
apache - Apache hypertext transfer protocol server overview DESCRIPTION
apache consists of a main server daemon, loadable server modules, some additional support utilities, configuration files, and documenta- tion. FILES
The apache HTTPD server is integrated with Solaris. The following files specify the installation locations for apache: /etc/apache Contains server configuration files. A newly-installed server must be manually configured before use. Typically this involves copying httpd.conf-example to the httpd.conf file and making local configuration adjustments. /usr/apache/bin Contains the httpd executable as well as other utility programs. /usr/apache/htdocs Contains the Apache manual in HTML format. This documentation is accessible by way of a link on the server test page that gets installed upon fresh installation. /usr/apache/include Contains the Apache header files, which are needed for building various optional server extensions with apxs(8) /usr/apache/jserv Contains documention for the mod_jserv java servlet module. Documention can be read with a web browser using the url: file:/usr/apache/jserv/docs/index.html /usr/apache/libexec Contains loadable modules (DSOs) supplied with the server. Any modules which are added using apxs(8)are also copied into this directory. /usr/apache/man Contains man pages for the server, utility programs, and mod_perl. Add this directory to your MANPATH to read the Apache man pages. See NOTES. /usr/apache/perl5 Contains the modules and library files used by the mod_perl extension to Apache. /var/apache/cgi-bin Default location for the CGI scripts. This can be changed by altering the httpd.conf file and restarting the server. /var/apache/htdocs Default document root. This can be changed by altering the httpd.conf file and restarting the server. /var/apache/icons Icons used by the server. This normally shouldn't need to be changed. /var/apache/logs Contains server log files. The formats, names, and locations of the files in this directory can be altered by various configuration directives in the httpd.conf file. /var/apache/proxy Directory used to cache pages if the caching feature of mod_proxy is enabled in the httpd.conf file. The location of the cache can also be changed by changing the proxy configuration in the httpd.conf file. ATTRIBUTES

attributes(5) http://www.apache.org NOTES
In addition to the documentation and man pages included with Solaris, more information is available at http://www.apache.org The Apache man pages are provided with the programming modules. To view the manual pages for the Apache modules with the man command, add /usr/apache/man to the MANPATH environment variable. See man(1) for more information. Running catman(1M) on the Apache manual pages is not supported. SunOS 5.10 8 Aug 2000 apache(1M)
