That is the way I run all my client WP installs. I do this to keep  
the site root clean.

Put the engine into a folder, /wordpress/ under the site root, Copy  
the index.php into the root and add the path reference. This way the  
OPTIONS page values become:

WordPress address (URL):  http://www.mysite.com/wordpress
Blog address (URL): http://www.mysite.com/wordpress

Though I've also played with leaving these as:
WordPress address (URL):  /wordpress
Blog address (URL): /

Figuring the relative URLs will be properly translated by Apache. But  
have notice the some RSS items to not yield the full site URL. Have  
not had a chance to dig into this.

One thing I've often wondered about is why the full URL is stored as  
part of the Post guid field?
