Remember that you have to add the Directory directive after you create the alias. For example:

Alias /musicarchive/ "/user/user_name/music/itunes/itunes music/"

<Directory "user/user_name/music/itunes/itunes music/">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Also, the path in the Alias and Directory is case sensitive, so you would use "/Users", not "users".

    i've done all of that, but this is still what i get:

    You don't have permission to access /musicarchive/ on this server.

    Apache/1.3.27 Server at themcnetwork.local Port 80

    any ideas?

      you need to change the permissions of your folders to enable apache to acces them. Set every one (You, group, and others) to read. You may have additional write privelages for yourself.

      I have done this myself, and that's all there was to it for me (as well as adding the folder in Terminal)
