How do I create a subdomain in Plesk 9 so that it would point to a folder inside web root of my main site?

I want both sub.domain.com and domain.com/sub point to the same folder /var/www/htdocs/domain.com/httpdocs/sub

Plesk 9 unlike previous versions does not ask me how and where I want to host a subdomain... Why, btw?

Previously I used CPanel everywhere and liked it for the level of control it gives me. Though, it can look complex to first-time user.

From http://www.parallels.com/eu/download/plesk/products/

"When you download Parallels Plesk Panel from our website, you are downloading a free, fully functional version, activated for 1-domain and 1-email."

Are you using the free version?

Probably. Does it change anything if it is "fully functional version"? –  FractalizeR Feb 1 '10 at 10:42
Addition: no, I am not because I already added 2 domains without problem –  FractalizeR Feb 1 '10 at 10:51
