I'm not sure what you mean when you say /data1. Do you mean the URL based
at /data1, or a directory /data1 (I assume you mean the latter).

In this case, you could do something like this (I haven't tried this, but
I suspect it will work):

start_url: http://localhost/ http://localhost/data/
local_urls: http://localhost/=/home/httpd/html/ \

I'll point out that ht://Dig is not really designed for indexing
directories. It was designed primarily for indexing websites. So it's not
very easy at the moment to make it index a filesystem.
