On our Linux webserver, we have this line in the httpd.conf:
Alias /CFIDE "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/CFIDE"
Which should automatically create this virtual mapping for you, meaning you shouldn't have to copy the directory.
Again, apologies if I've misunderstood.
For proper deployment of the CFIDE directory, you should read the CF 9 lockdown guide available from Adobe - this describes how to prevent access to /CFIDE/administrator and /CFIDE/adminapi/.
