point domain "a" to "[domain b]/blog"

Hi there.

My search capabilities on this topic are pretty low (because noob), so please bear with me.
I have a Domain a.com and want a hosted wordpress installation on b.com (internal redirect to b.com/wp-install should that matter) to show up at a.com/blog (for SEO reasons).
I looked into .htaccess, CNAME and "Proxy" methods (that's one redirection method @ the wordpress hoster, I'm not sure this really is a proper proxy) but can't figure out how to do it right.
mod_rewrite seems to make this possible but my webserver isn't apache but rather the integrated server that the play 1.2.7 framework provides.

Any help is appreciated!

First of all, unless you own "a.com" and/or "b.com", you should not be
using them in a message.

The first thing you need is a DNS record to direct your original domain
name to your secondary one.  Then in your secondary domain you would
need an entry in your http.conf file to direct the domain to the
appropriate directory.  It may be the same as your secondary domain, or
something else.
